Tour Focused on White Mold Management


A special 1-hour tour focused on white mold management in soybeans, dry beans, and sunflowers will be conducted as part of the Carrington Research Extension Center's annual row crop tour this year.

The white mold tour will be conducted immediately before the customary row crop tour.  The row crop tour is on September 3, with the special white mold addition to the tour conducted from 3:15 to 4:15 pm.  The normal tour will commence at 4:30 pm, and the tours will conclude with supper at 7:30 pm.  

The white mold tour will focus on research trials addressing the following subjects:

  1. Optimizing plant populations and row spacing for white mold management and maximum yield in soybeans
  2. Optimizing fungicide application timing for white mold management in soybeans and dry beans
  3. Prospects for using drop nozzles to improve fungicide coverage and Sclerotinia control in sunflowers, soybeans, and dry beans
  4. Optimizing irrigation management for maximum dry bean and soybean yield in fields where white mold is an important constraint.
  5. Efficacy and optimal application timing of Contans, a commercial formulation of the biological control agent Coniothyrium minitans, for management of white mold in soybeans.
