Notes on White Mold
  • White Mold or Sclerotinia Stem Rot is caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum
  • Fungus overwinters as sclerotia in the soil and re-appears when the crop canopy closes in July/August
  • Symptoms include white, bleached lesions on stems; white mycelium on surface of lesions; followed by rapid wilting.
  • Heads Up® is an excellent additional Mode of Action for White Mold prevention in both Soybeans and Dry Beans.
  • White Mold can be suppressed with many fungicides, but ONLY Heads Up® gives you preventative control from time of germination due to Systemic Acquired Resistance (S.A.R.)
