Soybean Root Rot

Damping off photo

The wet spring has caused soybean root rot problems in North Dakota. Damping off and root rots can be caused by many different pathogens; Pythium species, Phytophthora sojae, Fusarium species and Rhizoctonia solaniUnfortunately, it can be very difficult to determine which pathogen is causing the primary disease.  In many cases, it is likely that multiple pathogens are acting synergistically to cause the damping off.
