Kansas State University Researchers Find New Pathogens in Soybean Seeds

plantmanagementnetwork.org [cached]

Seeds have microorganisms that live on and within them, said Little, an associate professor of plant pathology at Kansas State University.
Some of those seed-borne microorganisms are harmless and actually helpful to the seed. But pathogens also reside within the seeds. Since 2011, Little has been studying the biology of soybean seeds to find out what affects their ability to germinate and, thus, impact a farmers productivity. Pathogens, such as viruses, bacteria or other microorganisms, cause disease and thus rob farmers of greater crop yields. You can find a lot of different pathogens, a lot of different fungi, a lot of organisms that live in the seed and seedlings, but the question becomes are they actually pathogens capable of causing disease, Little said. Little and his research team have collected soybean seeds from 11 locations in Kansas, which he says includes several hundred samples. Then they isolated the fungi in the laboratory to see just whats living inside the seeds. The way we categorize pathogens has changed, so being able to identify what it is in a precise way helps us to figure out control strategies, he said. And, Little noted, many of these seed-borne pathogens may cause seedling problems. Their finding is significant because both species, and many more, are capable of being pathogens and are resistant to fungicides commonly used to treat seed. It raises big questions, Little said. Just because you can detect it, what are you going to do about it? So far, theres not a good answer to that question, but researchers now have a better view of pathogens that affect soybean seeds and seedlings. They can determine the best seed treatments or fungicides to use to control for disease, or provide DNA information that helps plant breeders develop stronger varieties. Theres always new germplasm that needs to be screened for resistance to make sure that youve got really good, well-adapted varieties, Little said. Chris Little 785-532-1395 crlittle@ksu.edu
