Video: Early-Season Bacterial Blight in Soybeans


Bacterial blight typically shows up later in the growing season starting in the upper canopy. During the 2020 growing season, we have seen wind, hail, frost and cutworm damage to young soybean plants, which have opened plants up to infection. As the disease is bacterial, foliar fungicide cannot be used to control infection. Plants should continue to grow past this disease and yield loss will be minimal at low severity.
