Effect of Bacterial Pustule on Closely Related Soybean Lines1

  1. C. R. Weber,
  2. J. M. Dunleavy and
  3. W. R. Fehr2



Agronomic and chemical performance of closely related resistant and susceptible soybean lines was evaluated in the presence of bacterial pustule (Xanthomonas phaseoli var. sojense (Hedges) Starr & Burk.) The mean difference in bacterial pustule score between resistant and susceptible lines was 1.7. With these moderate disease conditions, the average seed yield reduction in the susceptible lines was 4.3%, of which 86% was attributed to reduced seed number and 14% to reduced seed size. On a linear basis, there was a seed yield reduction of 49.8 kg/ha (2.1%) for each unit increase in pustule score. Height, lodging, maturity, protein, and oil percent were comparable in the resistant and susceptible lines.
