Sudden Death Syndrome

I am starting to see several instances of Sudden Death Syndrome in soybean fields across this part of the state.

According to Dr. Don Hershman, excessive soil moisture and a very cool July, SDS is as widespread and severe as it's been in 20 years.

All fields in the program are between R2 and R4 at the present time, so premature defoliation resulting from SDS could lead to significant yield losses, depending on the incidence within the field.
