“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
