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. . . . → Read More: Soybean Disease Update: September 21, 2013
Frogeye leaf spot continues to be one of the main foliar diseases observed in the 2013 soybean crop. In several situations a fungicide has applied and frogeye continues to be an issue. In the current blog post several pieces of information are included to help aid decisions in whether or not a particular variety may be susceptible or resistant to frogeye. In addition, a table of the labeled fungicide products for use to prevent yield loss as a result of frogeye leaf spot are included. . . . → Read More: Soybean Frogeye Leaf Spot: Management Decisions for the Disease Following an R3/R4 Strobilurin Application

Stripe rust continues to be observed throughout scattered fields in the Delta. In addition, leaf rust was confirmed in isolated cases over the past week. Keep in mind that not all fields will require a fungicide application to prevent yield loss. Scout wheat fields at this time for stripe rust hot spots (small in size = less than 3 feet in diameter; to large in size = several trucks) and determine the wheat variety present before deciding on a fungicide application. . . . → Read More: Wheat Disease Update: March 30, 2013
