New Soybean Research: Gene could help keep a pest out and money in grower’s pockets
Several groups are joining forces to fight a pest that has been a thorn in the side of soybean growers, the soybean cyst nematode.
After four years, the University of Missouri, the University of Georgia, and USDA discovered a new gene that could help combat it. Researchers at the University of Georgia say the gene can shed new light on how soybean cyst nematode is adapting to genetic resistance.
They hope their findings will boost the profitability and productivity of farm workers nationwide.
