Watch for New Disease Called Soybean Dwarf Virus

Gil Gullickson 06/18/2013 @ 12:20pm Crops Technology Editor for Successful Farming magazine/Agriculture.com

As if you didn’t have enough soybean worries this year, here’s another threat. A new viral disease called soybean dwarf virus (SbDV) has surfaced in parts of the Corn Belt.

SbDV is actually more common in clover, but it can also occur in soybeans. It’s a foreign invader, having surfaced first in other nations.

“Soybean dwarf virus has caused devastating losses up to 40% in Japan,” says Daren Mueller, Iowa State University Extension plant pathologist.
