Stand establishment problems may be increased this spring because of the higher than normal precipitation and low seed quality. I have received more disease samples or questions on damping-off up to mid-May compared with this same period the past three springs. Determining which fungi are the cause of a problem in a particular field is key to managing seedling diseases because these fungi require different management treatments. This article describes how to identify fungal diseases in soybean.
