Soybean Disease Guide Now Available

Soybean Disease Guide Now Available

A new publication from Iowa State University and the Iowa Soybean Association is designed to help farmers more effectively manage soybean diseases when they appear.

A new publication is available which can help farmers manage soybean diseases more effectively. The publication, which you can obtain from Iowa State University Extension and the Iowa Soybean Association, is a comprehensive compilation of soybean disease information along with guidelines and recommendations on how to successfully manage these diseases.

The 36-page reference guide is titled "Soybean Diseases" and goes by publication number CSI 0004, if you want to order it from ISU. The 36-page guide includes information on 24 soybean diseases and features an overview of the major causes of plant disease; several photos of each disease; a glossary; and quick visual cues indicating which diseases are seed-transmitted.

Copies can be ordered online free of charge through ISU Extension Online Store at Shipping will be covered by ISU Extension.

It is a complete reference guide to soybean diseases in Iowa

This is the first complete publication on soybean diseases ISU has produced. Iowa State has over the years created other issue-specific disease management publications, but this is the first to put all that information in one place. The new publication was developed to mesh with existing scouting resources. The new publication offers more detailed disease information and outlines management options once the disease is identified using the scouting field guide.

The publication was written by Daren Mueller and ISU Extension colleagues Alison Robertson, plant pathologist; Greg Tylka, nematologist; and Adam Sisson with the ISU Corn and Soybean Initiative. Funding was supplied by the Iowa soybean checkoff, ISA and ISU Extension.
