Sudden Death Syndrome (Fusarium Virguliforme)

Heads Up® – The first EPA registered seed treatment for both White Mold and Sudden Death Syndrome.

“Sudden death syndrome (SDS) and white mold are two of the most important fungal diseases in soybean production in the US, affecting 40 to 50 million acres in the north-central region. Yield losses can be as high as 50% in fields having severe infestation. Outbreaks of the two diseases occur in seasons with different temperatures. Therefore, these two diseases threaten the sustainable production of soybean in the North Central Region.” – Dr. X.B. Yang, ISU
