Webinar: Using Research-Based Solutions for Integrated Management of White Mold in Soybeans

White mold in soybeans

On Wednesday, July 21, the next Pests and Progress webinar will feature Damon Smith, Associate Professor, Field Crops Pathology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Smith will share his research on control options for managing white mold in soybeans. In the past five growing seasons, white mold has caused 36 million bushels of yield loss in the North Central states alone. Smith will discuss use of resistant soybean varieties, modification of row spacing and plant population, crop rotation, biological controls, and fungicide applications—along with recommendations for improving management by combining several of these techniques.

In addition, you will hear about an innovative smartphone prediction tool called Sporecaster, which was developed to help predict white mold infestations. This app is now available for free to help improve mold management in soybeans.
