Soybean Frogeye Leaf Spot: Management Decisions for the Disease Following an R3/R4 Strobilurin Application

Soybean Frogeye Leaf Spot: Management Decisions for the Disease Following an R3/R4 Strobilurin Application

🕔20:17, 28.Jul 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.

Soybean Rust Detected in a Soybean Sentinel Plot in Pearl River County

🕔19:50, 11.Jul 2013

Once again this season soybean rust has been detected early in July. A single infected leaf was discovered in a soybean sentinel plot in Pearl River County on Tuesday, July 9, 2013. Historically this is 4 days earlier than last season (2012) and 2 days earlier than the earliest occurrence of rust in MS that occurred in 2007 on kudzu. At present, no additional management scenarios are necessary. We continue to scout to determine how widespread infection may be across south MS.

Soybean Fungicide Management Considerations for 2013

🕔14:26, 1.Jun 2013

Over the past week we’ve received two reports of frogeye leaf spot in reproductive soybeans. In both cases, a susceptible variety was planted and frogeye leaf spot symptoms can be clearly distinguished throughout the canopy. Following the observation and reports of strobilurin-resistant frogeye leaf spot in two fields in MS last year, and from adjacent states, it is most important to determine what particular soybean variety is planted in a field prior to making a decision on a specific fungicide product for yield loss prevention.

Soybean Seedling Issues: Seedling Disease Versus Herbicide Injury

Soybean Seedling Issues: Seedling Disease Versus Herbicide Injury

🕔19:57, 14.May 2013

Within the past week to 10 days, numerous fields have been diagnosed as having “Pythium seedling disease”. In most cases, herbicide injury has resulted in fields appearing to have an uneven stand as a result of seedling disease. Rarely would a seedling disease be responsible for large acreages of dead seedlings. More than likely, a combination of events have occurred to cause the appearance of seedling disease. Preemergence herbicides, cool temperatures, excessive rainfall following planting immediately prior to emergence, light soil texture, and herbicide injury on stressed soybean seedlings have all compounded the stressful situation.
