Direct Enterprises, Inc. (DEI) introduced CeraMax, a new EPA-registered biological seed treatment designed to improve soybeans yields by guarding crops against Fusarium, the fungal disease that causes sudden death syndrome (SDS).
With tight profit margins, and other issues affecting farm profitability, some producers that use iLeVO for helping manage sudden death syndrome (SDS) of soybeans have decided to skip including base fungicide treatments in an effort to save money, according to the University of Illinois Extension.
Most Midwest producers are behind in getting corn and soybeans into the ground this year as a result of persistent rains and cool temperatures. The University of Illinois takes a look at what this might mean for some of the common field crop diseases.
In search of higher yields, many producers aim to plant soybeans early in the season. When considering this practice, there are two diseases to be mindful of: Sudden death syndrome (SDS) and Pythium root rot (PRR).
Simply planting SCN varieties said to be resistant is no longer an effective solution to the problem, and areas with high levels of both SDS and SCN need to managed simultaneously, says Purdue University Extension.
