Agronomy Tip: Seed Treatments for Disease
Ryan Moeller, Technical Seed Agronomist with WinField United says, “Diseases don’t go away when the soil warms up, so it’s absolutely critical that you use a seed treatment with soybeans.”
Even if you treat your soybeans when soils are cold and wet, or you plant later, diseases will pop up, and while they may not kill plants outright, they will affect the roots and weaken the plant.”
“Over time, those diseases may eventually kill the crop or let other things kill them. So, seed treatments are critical to make sure that you get the plant out of the ground and protected throughout a portion of its life,” explains Moeller.
