We found that ILeVO® fungicide applied as a seed treatment or in-furrow was effective at reducing SDS severity levels compared to control plots.
Several new print and online materials about SDS were developed as part of this project.

We tested 58 potential biological control organisms isolated from soybean fields against seven soybean fungal pathogens and found several organisms that restrict the growth of Fusarium virguliforme
, which causes sudden death syndrome, Fusarium graminearum
, a seed decay and damping-off pathogen, and Macrophomina phaseolina
, the causal agent of charcoal rot.
