Bean pod mottle virus (BPMV) is prevalent this summer and damage already has occurred in some soybean fields. Because soybean mosaic virus also can produce symptoms similar to BPMV, a test kit is sometimes necessary for correct disease identification. The Iowa State University "Plant Disease Clinic" provides a service to test for BPMV with an identification kit manufactured by Agdia. The kit is easy to use and produces results quickly. Submit fresh leaves from suspected plants (root tissue is not needed) to the ISU Plant Disease Clinic at Department of Plant Pathology, 323 Bessey, Iowa State University, Ames, IA 50011.
