Research

Research must focus on management of diseases that cause extensive losses, especially when funds are limited. The objective of this project was to compile estimates of soybean yield losses to diseases in the top eight soybean-producing countries for the 2006 harvested crop. The goal was to show the extent of yield loss to help local and world agencies allocate funds for research and to help scientists focus and coordinate research efforts.
