Yield Loss Prediction Tool for Field-Specific Risk Management of Asian Soybean Rust

Project Updates - Kentucky August 2007

USA, Lexington Kentucky - August 2nd, 2007 (Joe Omielan) - Project Update

The Southern Regional Exchange and Awareness Program (REAP) tour sponsored by the American Soybean Association (ASA) and EMD Crop BioScience visited our plots at Spindletop Farm on August 2.  The group included growers from 11 states, including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North and South Dakota, Wisconsin and Ohio.  Dr. Saratha Kumudini presented the objectives and methodology of the SBR Yield Loss Model Project and then answered numerous questions (see photo below).  Hopefully, new partnerships may result from this exchange of information and ideas.
