White Mold in Beans By Dale Cowan CCA-ON Senior Agronomist/Sales Manager AGRIS Co-operative & Wanstead Farmers' Co-operative
At the risk of sounding like “Captain Obvious,” we have white mold in soybeans. By now we have seen wilting in patches of the field. Upon inspection you see the white fuzzy mold. After a few days that white fuzzy mold will condense into the hard, black, rat dropping looking pieces. These are called sclerotia, these are the over wintering reproductive stage of the disease.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected during Friday in the west and south areas of the Northern Plains and through the northwest part of the central Plains. A few showers and thundershowers are also possible over portions of the northeast and east-central Midwest Friday. » More DTN Weather Commentary
