    Building and maintaining healthy soils not only leads to profitable farming and improved water quality by keeping more pollutants out of streams and waterways, it can also factor into determining farmland value. That’s a key theme that will be emphasized during the annual Conservation Tillage and Technology Conference, held March 2-3 at the McIntosh Center of Ohio Northern University in Ada, said Randall Reeder, a retired Ohio State University Extension agricultural engineer.

    Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Is a major disease caused by F. grammearum, that infects wheat (Tritfcum aestfvum L) ano other cereals. one Important aspect for managing FHB in wheat Is breeding tor resistant varieties. However, evaluating FHB within a breeding program takes a large amount of resources. Marker assisted selection (MAS) has been effective ror traits controlled by major genes. but most olthe genes controlling FHB resistance are not effectively deployed by conventional MAS. Genomic selection

    Soybean cyst nematode (SCN; Heterodera glycines) is a microscopic roundworm that feeds on the roots of soybean causing more than $1 billion in losses to U.S. soybean producers annually. SCN management relies heavily on the deployment of resistant soybean cultivars. The roots of plants carrying Rhg (for resistance to Heterodera glycines) genes are penetrated by infective juveniles, but feeding cells induced by the nematodes to serve as their sole nutritive source, degenerate prematurely. The recently
