Sudden Death Syndrome Found in Sutherland, NE, Soybeans

Disease is caused by soil-borne fungus and is not expected to spread rapidly

Sudden death syndrome was discovered recently in a Sutherland, NE, soybean field, reports The North Platte Telegraph.

Although the disease tends to occur in eastern Nebraska, University of Nebraska-Lincoln plant pathologist Tony Adesemoye told the Telegraph he has not seen it in western Nebraska in the four years he has been here.

The good news is that the disease is caused by a soil-borne fungus and is not expected to spread rapidly.

Cold, wet spring conditions like the area had this year, along with poor drainage, favor the disease.
