Are Late-Season Soybean Rust Observations Important?

🕔21:49, 22.Sep 2015

Late-season soybean rust observations occur on almost an annual basis. Even though the majority of the soybean crop has escaped yield loss as a result of soybean rust again for the 2015 season, determining the extent of the disease in MS as well as potential locations where the fungus could overwinter continue to be an important part of the monitoring/scouting program. At present (9/22), soybean rust has been detected in 41 counties.

Automatic Soybean Fungicide Applications: Timing, Product Choice, Rates in Product Combination

Automatic Soybean Fungicide Applications: Timing, Product Choice, Rates in Product Combination

🕔11:42, 19.Jun 2015

Questions continue regarding fungicide products to be used at the R3/R4 application timing. The most important decisions should be made based on the specific variety planted in each field since frogeye leaf spot is resistant to the strobilurin class of fungicides meaning that stand-alone strobilurin products are no longer effective against the disease. See the information contained within this blog post regarding fungicide products, effective rates of products in pre-mix combinations and the effectiveness of some fungicides on managing frogeye leaf spot.

Soybean Disease Update: September 21, 2013

🕔15:25, 21.Sep 2013

Soybean disease questions still consider to be raised throughout MS. Even though soybean rust has been detected in 45 counties to date it appears we will have another season where yield losses as a result of soybean rust will be extremely limited and may only have occurred in a handful of fields. When making plans for next year consider sampling for nematodes in light textured soil classes. In addition, planting a frogeye susceptible variety in several years in a continuous soybean system may increase the likelihood of frogeye causing substantial yield loss.
