With this wet planting season, soybean damping-off and poor emergence are prevalent in Iowa. Several fungi are contributing to the problems, especially Phytophthora, Pythium, and Rhizoctonia. After the seedling stage, soybean may or may not grow out of these disease problems, depending on the pathogens involved. This article discusses what may happen after damping-off.
