November 21, 2013 Meeting Minutes

SBARE Soybean Granting Committee
ND Soybean Council Office, Fargo

The State Board of Agricultural Research and Education held their soybean granting committee meeting in conjunction with the North Dakota Soybean Council’s research committee meeting. Tyler Speich served as chair for the meeting. Voting committee members present were Charles Linderman, Lucas Rode, David Teigen, Jason Mewes, Rick Albrecht and Brent Kohls. Others present were Kendall Nichols, Suzanne Wolf, Dr. Marcia McMullen and Lori Capouch.

Applicants appeared before the committee to present their proposals.  The following were considered by the SBARE committee:

Virulent Types of Soybean Cyst Nematode in North Dakota
Researcher(s): Dr. Berlin Nelson Jr.
Amount requested: $28,650

This project examines the diversity of virulent forms of soybean cyst nematode in North Dakota.  The information generated will have practical value in understanding management techniques for this important soybean disease.

Impact of Tillage System, Previous Fertility, and Previous Crop on Rhizobia Population, Nitrogen Credit, and Soybean Production
Researcher:  Ezra Aberle
Amount requested:  $7,355

The goal of this research project is to assess the impact of tillage, crop rotation, and previous nitrogen fertility on indigenous rhizobia and the persistence of rhizobia inoculants and soybean production.  Another goal is to quantify how rhizobia populations are affected by the previous treatments and the impact it has on nitrogen credits to the following crops.

Funding decisions

It was moved and seconded to grant negotiated funding of up to $28,650 for the project titled “Virulent Types of Soybean Cyst Nematode in North Dakota.”  The motion carried.

It was moved and seconded to grant negotiated funding of up to $7,355 for the project titled “Impact of Tillage System, Previous Fertility, and Previous Crop on Rhizobia Population, Nitrogen Credit, and Soybean Production.”  The motion carried.

There being no further business, the committee meeting was adjourned.

 

November 18, 2010 Meeting Minutes

State Board of Agricultural Research and Education
Soybean Granting Committee
Ramada
Plaza Suites, Fargo

The State Board of Agricultural Research and Education held their committee meeting in conjunction with the North Dakota Soybean Council’s research committee meeting. Chair Monte Peterson called the meeting to order at 7:30 a.m.  Voting committee members present were Peterson, Scott Glauslow, Chris Johnson, Jay Meyers, Jason Mewes, Claude Richard and Tyler Speich.  Non-voting members present were Mike Belz (SBARE board member) and Deborah Johnson.  Also present was Lori Capouch.

Applicants appeared before the committee to present their proposals.  The following were considered eligible for SBARE funding.

Impact of tillage system and previous crop on root rots and soybean production
Researcher(s): Ezra Aberle, Michael Wunsch, Blaine Schatz and Steve Metzger
Amount requested: $6,850

This research will provide data for producers to use to develop crop rotations including soybean that enhances soybean production, minimizes root rot disease, and maximizes the rotation benefits of soybean to following crops in the rotation within their desired tillage system.

Impact of nitrogen on soybean aphid densities and parasitization by Binodoxys
Researcher:  Dierdre A. Prischmann-Voldseth
Amount requested:  $10,313

We will investigate how different sources of nitrogen (fertilization versus nitrogen-fixation) impact soybean aphid densities and bio-control by the parasitoid Binodoxys communis. The researcher’s long-term goal is to provide farmers with recommendations on how land management and root nodule inoculation may ameliorate soybean aphid pressure within their fields.

Reproduction of soybean cyst nematode on weeds in North Dakota
Researcher:  Berlin Nelson
Amount requested:  $23,063

This project will determine if the soybean cyst nematode, a pathogen of soybean, can reproduce on weeds in North Dakota

Additional project that could be considered for SBARE funding:

Soybean dessicant evaluation
Researcher: Rich Zollinger
Amount requested: $20,550 (total)

The objective of this project is to identify the most effective desiccant and stage of soybean without compromising the quality or yield of the crop. Desiccants have frequently been used in other crops for a number of years. There are many products proven effective for use in dry bean, sunflower, canola, and potato.  Recently, there seems to be a growing interest to identify which products can be equally effective in soybean without compromising quality and yield of the crop. Along with product selection, determining the proper stage is important as well. Making an application too early could lead to a decrease in seed weight while making an application too late may not be economically sound.

Funding decisions

It was moved and seconded to grant negotiated funding as follows:

  1. $6,850 to the project titled “Impact of tillage system and previous crop on root rots and soybean performance.”
  2. $10,313 to the project titled “Impact of nitrogen on soybean aphid densitites and parasitization.”
  3. $23,063 to the project titled “Reproduction of soybean cyst nematodes on weeds in North Dakota.”
  4. $1,549 to the project titled “Soybean dessicant evaluation.”

The motion carried.

There being no further business, the committee meeting was adjourned.
