New CW Podcast on Soybean Seedling Diseases
Soybean seedling diseases are the focus of this CropWatch Podcast with Extension Educator Michael Sindelar and Extension Plant Pathologist Tamra Jackson-Ziems.
They discuss soybean germination concerns, particular issues for 2019, what to look for when scouting soybean stands, resources to use in making disease management decisions, and how to manage Pythium and Phythophthora, a water mold that tends to prefer wet soil conditions. They also discuss strategies for controlling soilborne diseases in general.
