Soybean planting is around the corner and the best time to protect against seedling diseases is prior to planting! The Crop Protection Network, through the Southern Region IPM Center, is offering a webinar series that will be covering important aspects of soybean seedling diseases research and management, as well as the latest information on fungicide resistance in soybean.
In the past three growing seasons seedling diseases (Fusarium root rot, Phytophthora root rot, Pythium seedling blight, Rhizoctonia seedling blight) caused up to 1.5% yield loss across Kansas. Seedling diseases yield loss can be significant under wet and cold conditions, particularly in poorly drainage soils. Tune in for more information!
Registration for each webinar is required.
These webinars are made possible by U.S. soybean farmers funded through the Soy Checkoff. Certified Crop Advisor continuing education credits will be available for each webinar.
