SDS

In 2013 there was an early season risk of Sudden Death Syndrome with the excess early rain, but because most of the soybeans were planted later in the season, and we experienced a hot, dry summer, SDS was not much of a problem.   This year’s consistent rains and cool summer temperatures has created a favorable environment for the development of SDS.  Unlike last year, most of the 2014 soybean crop was planted before the rains started and the wet weather amplified the root rot phase of the disease.  Our moderate summer temps then allowed the SDS to spread to the leaves. That combination has lead us to see many fields starting to show signs of SDS. 
 
Now is the time to be scouting your fields for evidence of SDS. There are a few other diseases that may be confused with SDS such as brown stem rot and stem canker. Look for lesions on the outside (stem canker) and browning in the pith (brown stem rot) to distinguish from SDS.  Give Jon Boland a call if you would like him to give your fields a look. 
 
 Since there is no cure after your crop is infected, management of your fields which have SDS in the soils is crucial.  Rotating away from SDS susceptible crops and planting soybean varieties which have SDS resistance are your best bets for reducing damage to your crop.
 
The yield data will be coming in soon and Mycogen and Asgrow have many varieties that have proven tolerance to SDS.  Now is the time to get your seed locked in for 2015.  Call Jon (641-680-6186) or Todd (641-344-0144) to discuss what numbers are best for your operation.
