Using Research-Based Solutions for Integrated Management of White Mold in Soybeans
White mold, caused by the fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum is one of the most important diseases of soybean in the Midwest U.S. In the last five seasons, white mold has resulted in more than 36 million bushels of yield loss in the North Central IPM Center states alone. Management of white mold is complicated and requires a multi-pronged approach. Researchers in the Midwest U.S. have been working to refine the integrated management strategy for white mold, which includes using resistant varieties, modifying row spacing and planting population, crop rotation, biological controls, and fungicide applications. To assist in making fungicide application decisions, researchers have also developed innovative smartphone prediction tools. The smartphone application (app) Sporecaster is freely available and can be used specifically to predict white mold at a specific location. This presentation will outline the latest white mold research-based tools and showcase how these tools have been integrated together to improve white mold management of soybeans.
