Biotech Q&A - January 2013 (1-23-2013)Midwest soybean farmers have had access to Roundup Ready 1 (RR1) soybean trait technology since the mid-1990s. Monsanto patented the biotech trait with tolerance to glyphosate herbicides and incorporated the trait into soybean seed in the early 1990s. U.S. patents are only granted for a 20-year period, however, so Monsanto's RR1 trait patent is about to expire. Here's what you need to know about the change.

Two Species of Symbiotic Bacteria Present in the Soybean Aphid (1-14-2010)ABSTRACT Aphids, which feed solely on plant phloem sap, have developed symbiotic associations with bacteria that provide them with the amino acids that are lacking in phloem. Three soybean aphid (Aphis glycines Mat samura) populations were screened for the presence of Buchnera aphidicola and three common species of secondary aphid symbionts (Serratia symbiotica, Hamiltonella defensa, and Regiella insecticola). Diagnostic polymerase chain reaction and subsequent DNA sequencing showed the presence of two species of symbiotic bacteria present in all three soybean aphid populations tested: B. aphidicola and Arsenophonus sp. Although Buchnera is commonly found in aphids, Arsenophonus is most commonly found in whiteßies (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae), making the soybean aphid unique among aphids that have been tested for the presence of Arsenophonus.
Pathogenic Variation of Phakopsora pachyrhizi Infecting Soybean in Nigeria (1-14-2010)Soybean rust, caused by Phakopsora pachyrhizi, is an important disease in Nigeria and many other soybean-producing countries worldwide.
To determine the geographical distribution of soybean rust in Nigeria, soybean fields were surveyed in the Derived Savanna (DS), Northern Guinea Savanna (NGS), and Southern Guinea Savanna (SGS) agroecological zones in Nigeria between 2004 and 2006. Disease severity in each zone was determined and analyzed using geostatistics.
Effect of Fungicide and Timing of Application on Soybean Rust Severity and Yield (1-14-2010)Soybean rust, caused by Phakopsora pachyrhizi, is a devastating foliar disease of soybean that may cause significant yield losses if not managed by well-timed fungicide applications. To determine the effect of fungicide timing on soybean rust severity and soybean yield, field trials were completed in Paraguay (four locations), the United States (two locations), and Zimbabwe (one location) from 2005 to 2006.
