Disease pressure is high in soybeans this year…

Today we looked at a number of soybean fields that have been attacked by a number of soil born diseases. Because of the extreme conditions this season – cool and wet, then hot and dry – a lot of fields are starting to show problem areas. The field pictured below in particular looks like it has some areas of rhizoctonia starting. We are sending some samples down to the plant pathology lab to confirm our diagnosis.
