A new set of soybean accessions from south-central China were added to the USDA germplasm collection in 1996. Previous studies have shown that accessions with high levels of resistance to brown stem rot (BSR) can be found in germplasm collected from central and southern China. The objective of this study was to screen these accessions and identify those with resistance to BSR. In a preliminary study, 85 of 623 accessions tested were identified as resistant to BSR. In the second study, these 85

From these two studies, ten accessions were identified that had BSR resistance equal to or greater than the current resistant sources.
