Symptoms of Sudden Death Syndrome Begin to Appear in Soybeans

SHARE

The University of Illinois is reporting symptoms of sudden death syndrome (SDS) in soybeans at a university research center. Last week, symptoms of SDS began to appear in April 15-planted soybeans at the University of Illinois’s Northwestern Research Center in Warren County. U of I Extension educator Angie Peltier says weather during the 2015 growing season was favorable for the development of SDS.

Symptoms began appearing approximately 3 weeks earlier than in 2014. Research has also shown that SDS may be more severe in fields that also have high populations of soybean cyst nematodes.
