An extension agronomist covering northern Iowa is surprised by disease pressure in soybeans given the dry growing season.
Angie Rieck-Hinz is with Iowa State University.
What is up with all the soybeans, right? Besides there are soybeans that are naturally maturing and turning color, we’ve had a lot of diseases pop up in the last couple of weeks in our soybean fields.”
She tells Brownfield from the road it’s difficult to differentiate between crop maturity and the presence of disease.
