A plant pathologist says drought limited disease pressure for corn and soybeans in 2022.
Dylan Mangel with the University of Nebraska discusses some of the top issues. “Phytophthora root rot – phytophthora will get in there when plants are germinating and take them out early or it can impact them in the middle of the season. During the middle of the season, we saw frogeye leaf spot and sudden death syndrome issues.”
He tells Brownfield soybean cyst nematode became prevalent at the end of the growing season.
