Abstract

Fungi are one of the top categories of pathogens causing major diseases in soybean and reduce yields every year. Survival propagules produced by pathogens such as Fusarium virguliforme (Sudden death syndrome), Rhizoctonia solani (Rhizoctonia root rot), Pythium spp. (Pythium damping off) and Sclerotinia sclorotiorum (white mold)), make management of diseases a little tougher. Of the several management options, fungicide seed treatments were investigated in ISU research farms and controlled conditions in the greenhouse. Out of several fungicides tested against each of the diseases listed above, some of the fungicides, either have reduced the incidence and severities and or provided yield advantage compared with untreated control treatments. In this report, methodology adopted, results obtained has been discussed.
