2023 Abstract - MANAGING SOYBEAN DISEASES AND THE POTENTIAL IMPACT REDUCED TILLAGE SYSTEMS HAVE ON THEIR DEVELOPMENT: The foundation of a disease management program begins with identifying your enemy. Disease identification is key to management. After the disease(s) has/have been identified only then can management strategies be implemented. In Louisiana, soybean is plagued by numerous diseases that can negatively impact yield and quality. Reduced tillage systems can increase the risk to some of these diseases. This presentation will address identification, development, and management of the major diseases affecting soybean in the Mid-South.
