Description

With the current changes in weed management and the onset of glyphosate resistant weed species, soybean farmers are using both additional herbicide modes and action and more preplant herbicide options to supplement glyphosate in their weed management programs. In years with conditions favorable for seedling disease and other disease there are typically concerns and inquiries about the cause(s) of symptoms in agronomic plants. Many of the questions focus on differentiating between plant injuries potentially caused by recent herbicide applications versus symptoms caused by plant pathogens.
