Seedling diseases cause stand reduction in soybean in the spring season, with severity varying from year to year. Once severe stand reduction happens, it is important to determine if a fungal disease is involved before the decision to replant is made. If damping-off is the cause of stand reduction, seed treatment may be needed for replanting. Proper identification of seedling disease is essential for correcting problems in the future. It is also important to know what fungi caused the seedling disease because different fungicides are effective in controlling different fungi.
