NCSU's Dunphy, Koenning Involved In Award Winning Crop Protection

NCSU's Dunphy, Koenning Involved In Award Winning Crop Protection | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it
These two NCSU CALS professors have striven to have an impact on the ASR threat.
CALS Research, NCSU's insight:

Crop scientist, Dr. Jim Dunphy & plant pathologist, Dr. Steve Koenning, have for years partnered to combat Asian Soybean Rust, which in some countries caused 80% crop loss. They helped develop an Integrated Pest Management system for the disease, the Soybean Rust PIPE, which can be found here:

North Carolina presents specialty crops grants | Vegetables content from Southeast Farm Press

North Carolina presents specialty crops grants | Vegetables content from Southeast Farm Press | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it
North Carolina has awarded $1.2 million in specialty crops grants, some of which targets organic production.

 

"

North Carolina State University received five of the grants, some geared directly toward improving the states already thriving organic farming enterprise. The state is one of few in the Southeast with an ongoing organic crops research and outreach program.

 

"Chris Reberg-Horton, who heads the North Carolina State organic crops program, says these crops are growing in size and economic importance to North Carolina and the Carolina-Virginia region.  ... "

Kudzu bugs continue to spread | Soybeans | Content from Southeast Farm Press

Kudzu bugs continue to spread | Soybeans | Content from Southeast Farm Press | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it

"Kudzu bugs, those tenacious little imports from Asia, continue to spread across the Southeast and continue to plague soybean growers, especially in the Carolinas." Entomology researcher, Dr. Dominic Reisig, says some growers sprayed prematurely; but damage is also difficult to predict.

 

Monitoring is more economical. Farmers can use the Southeast Early Detection Nertwork (SEEDN), here:

http://www.kudzubug.org/

 

There, farmers will find videos on how to sample for monitoring using sweep nets, information on control, and other resources.

 

The invasive insect has spread rapidly throughout the southeast in just a few growing seasons and is expected to have an economic impact in some areas.

CALS Research, NCSU's insight:

Dr. Jim Dunphy & Dr. Matt Koenning were honored by USDA-NIFA for their research to protect soybean from Asian soybean rust. The Southern Region Integrated Pest Management Center, which is located at NC State University, organized what it called the Soybean Rust PIPE. PIPE stands for Pest Information Platform for Extension and Education....

Southeast soybean growers have ‘once in a blue moon’ opportunity this season | Soybeans content from Southeast Farm Press

Southeast soybean growers have ‘once in a blue moon’ opportunity this season | Soybeans content from Southeast Farm Press | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it
Soybean growers in the Carolina’s and Virginia have more than two million acres of beans planted this year, much of the acreage in a late-planted, double-crop combination with wheat, barley, oats and a few other winter season crops.

 

“We do not recommend spraying soybeans with a fungicide to control Asian Soybean Rust if they are not yet blooming, if they are blooming, but rust has not been confirmed within 100 miles, or if full sized seeds are present in the top of the plant (stage R6),” says North Carolina State University Soybean Specialist Jim Dunphy.
