Summary: Soybean vein necrosis disease (SVND) is caused by Soybean vein necrosis virus (SVNV). Insects called thrips transmit SVNV. Since 2008 the incidence of SVND has increased throughout much of the soybean growing region of the U.S. Extension soybean pathologists around the country have been conducting research to understand the impact of SVND on soybean and to begin to develop management strategies for the disease. This presentation will highlight recent research conducted in multiple states to understand what impact SVND has on soybean yield and seed quality. Also, information on the biology of soybean thrips in the North Central region will be presented. This research is partially funded by the soybean check off through the North Central Soybean Research Program and several state soybean associations including the Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board.
United Soybean Board (USB) farmer-leaders develop and maintain partnerships with U.S. land grant universities and U.S. ag-focused research organizations such as the Plant Management Network to increase the transfer of checkoff-funded applied and practical production research information to U.S. soybean farmers.
