Iowa soybean producers are becoming more interested in using seed treatments to prevent stand reduction by soybean seedling diseases. This article describes how and when to use seed treatment. In a normal-weather season, early-planted soybean would grow in low-temperature, high-moisture soil, which increases seedling disease risk. If spring weather conditions are dry, seedling disease risk would be less of a concern because dry soil is not conducive for disease occurrence.
