Asgrow® Decade of the Bean: Leigh Ann Harrison

13;10; ​HarrisonLeigh Ann Harrison, a soybean pathologist, shared her wealth of soybean knowledge with Decade of the Bean attendees this last May. Leigh Ann discussed the different races of Phytophthora, its yield robbing potential and how she and her team are working to combat the pathogen. She also discussed how genetic traits are able to provide lasting protection throughout the plant’s growth, protection that outlasts seed treatments and other types of defenses. Leigh Ann explained how she and soybean breeders are working on developing a broader spectrum of protection against Phytophthora races by developing stacked gene products.
