Description

Sudden death syndrome (SDS) was severe in many fields across Iowa in 2014, resulting in yield loss and frustration for farmers. There are a few positive things that we can learn in a year like this, though. For one, many soybean varieties were pushed to their limits, allowing farmers to get a really good evaluation of the genetic resistance for SDS in a variety. Additionally, other beneficial management strategies can be identified that complement variety resistance.
