In the last 2 years, the incidence of soybean seedling diseases has been relatively high in some areas of Iowa. There are growers who are considering seed treatments to prevent stand reduction from soybean seedling diseases. Growers who replant due to damping-off are more likely to use seed treatments. The problematic fungi causing the seedling diseases vary, and they are often dependent on the planting date. In some fields, early planting is associated with damping-off by cool-temperature fungi. Disease risk may increase because soybeans are planted in soils that are cold and wet.
