Diseases in no-tilled row crops are often unpredictable, which leads to a growing environment for plants that is constantly in flux. Resistant diseases such as frogeye leaf spot are spreading each year. Target spot is emerging as a new, important driver in disease in Southern soybeans, and Southern rust is moving further north each year, says Carl Bradley.
The plant pathologist at the University of Kentucky will discuss how no-tillers can stay ahead of new disease pressure and further development of resistant diseases, how disease management can fit into the overall program for no-tilling row crops and how new research and technology can help growers get the upper hand in disease management.
In this episode of the No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Yetter Manufacturing, we are joined by Carl Bradley, plant pathologist at the University of Kentucky, to discuss how no-tillers can stay ahead of new disease pressure and further development of resistant diseases.
