Integrated Crop Management News

In a previous issue of the Integrated Crop Management newsletter, I discussed how to handle seed treatments for low-quality soybean seeds. I have received more questions on seed treatments and the current article addresses some of these questions. Compared with the last few seasons, this spring is wet and cool. If you plant soybean seed early to increase the probability of maximum yield, you will be planting in soil that is cooler than usual. Thus, a common question is, How does the wet and cool soil affect seedling diseases?
