In the 1999 growing season, sudden death syndrome and Phytophthora caused damage in some soybean fields. These fields may return to soybean next year after a 1-year rotation with corn. Often, tillage would be considered as a major management option to reduce disease risk. Because of lack of precipitation this year, use of tillage may not be wise in terms of preserving soil moisture. Other methods should be selected as alternatives for disease management for the following soybean diseases.
