A warm winter this year has generated discussion on the effects of climate on disease occurrence. At the 1998 Iowa State University ICM Conference, we discussed how diseases favored by cool temperatures may became less important, whereas warm-temperature diseases may increase in future years. At this year's ICM Conference, there were numerous comments and questions about new soybean diseases becoming increasingly important to production. Changes in disease occurrence have provided new challenges in disease management practices.
