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

Project Updates - Kentucky October 2009

USA, Lexington Kentucky - November 12th, 2009 (Joe Omielan) - Project Update

This month was a busy one with plots to harvest, data to analyse, and posters to prepare for scientific meetings.  Our group presented a number of posters at the ASA-CSSA-SSSA International Annual Meetings held in Pittsburgh, PA from November 1 to 5.  The abstracts are available on the meeting website http://www.acsmeetings.org.  The titles and links to PDF versions of the posters are listed below photos of the poster presenters.
