The University of Missouri Extension office in Holt County reports cases of Sudden Death Syndrome, or SDS, appearing in this year's soybean crop.
The disease attacks soybeans in the early spring, but symptoms don't show until later on in the season. If SDS is affecting crops, yellow blotches will appear on the leaves and cause yellow and brown areas between the leaf veins, but the veins will remain green. Regional Agronomist, Wayne Flanary, says the disease is resistant to fungicides, and the best defense is a variety of crop.
