Under the right environmental conditions, these symptoms appear as early as the start of flowering.
Do you have problems with Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) in soybeans? We are in search of grower fields with symptomatic Sudden Death Syndrome plants for us to sample.

The K-State Plant Disease Diagnostic Lab has implemented a new Soybean Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) molecular diagnostic tool to help growers properly identify this disease. This new SDS molecular test is faster and has higher detection capabilities than conventional methods. Insect damage and other diseases can present as similar foliar symptoms associated with SDS therefore testing is important.
