Management Practices to Reduce the Development of Fungicide Resistance in Soybean: Part III, Strobilurin-Resistant Frogeye Leaf Spot in Mississippi

Strobilurin-resistant frogeye leaf spot continues to be a topic of conversation. During 2012 two MS counties were confirmed to have strobilurin resistant frogeye leaf spot. Since that time a large survey has been conducted in MS to determine how widespread the resistance is within the fungal population in MS. . . . → Read More: Management Practices to Reduce the Development of Fungicide Resistance in Soybean: Part III, Strobilurin-Resistant Frogeye Leaf Spot in Mississippi

Management Practices to Reduce the Development of Fungicide Resistance in Soybean: Part II, Choosing Fungicide Products and Rates

Fungicides have become an important management alternative for diseases such as frogeye leaf spot. However, with the addition of the strobilurin-resistant fungus responsible for frogeye leaf spot, caution must be taken when applying fungicides to not increase the likelihood of fungicide resistance from developing. The specific characteristics of the main fungicide classes labeled for application in soybean systems are outlined. In addition, a table that includes the specific components of the pre-mix products when the labeled rates are applied is included. . . . → Read More: Management Practices to Reduce the Development of Fungicide Resistance in Soybean: Part II, Choosing Fungicide Products and Rates

Management Practices to Reduce the Development of Fungicide Resistance in Soybean: Part I, Improving Disease Management Practices

Fungicide resistance has continued to be a hot topic during the off-season. Since 2010, fungicide resistance within the frogeye leaf spot fungal population has been documented in several states including Mississippi. To prevent the development of fungicide resistance from increasing several important steps can be followed. Several of these specific topics will be outlined in this three part series regarding fungicide resistance. . . . → Read More: Management Practices to Reduce the Development of Fungicide Resistance in Soybean: Part I, Improving Disease Management Practices

2013 Soybean Variety Trial Disease Ratings: Maturity Group V Frogeye Leaf Spot and Cercospora Blight

Included in this blog post are ratings collected for frogeye leaf spot as well as Cercospora blight from the 2013 Maturity Group V soybean variety trials. Trials were conducted in Brooksville, Clarksdale (irrigated), Falkner, Longwood, Olive Branch, Raymond, Stoneville (clay and loam). The conventional/LibertyLink trial was only conducted at the Brooksville, Falkner, Longwood, and Stoneville (clay) locations. Ratings were collected based on a 0-9 and are presented from each location for each variety so a range of ratings is available across all environments encountered during the 2013 season. . . . → Read More: 2013 Soybean Variety Trial Disease Ratings: Maturity Group V Frogeye Leaf Spot and Cercospora Blight
