In the past 4 years, soybean pathologists in the north central region have been working on a coordinated project to find solutions of controlling soybean white mold. A new white mold Web site has been developed from this program for the North Central Soybean Research Program, a check-off dollar program. The site is hosted at University of Wisconsin at http://www.plantpath.wisc.edu/ncsrpwhitemold/
This site also links to white mold Web sites developed by pathologists in other states so that state specific information can be obtained. Although the long-term weather outlook is not favorable to the occurrence of white mold this summer, you may still be interested in checking this Web site because it has long-term disease management information, such as the effects of tillage and rotation on white mold occurrence.
