Since the first outbreak of white mold in 2004, white mold has been an even year disease in Iowa. In eastern Iowa, some producers regularly use fungicides or herbicide to control this disease, especially in even years. In a wet seson like this, many people will think that this is a year for white mold occurrence. However, this is not true. For many soybean fields in Iowa, this year is a low risk year. One should assess the risk before spraying for white mold control. This article will discuss how to assess the risk in your soybean field.
