|Street View of problem area|
|Visible Leaf Disease narrowing diagnosis down to Brown Stem and or Sudden Death|
|Initial Walk in view of problem area|
|Root area to pull infected plants and begin to cut stems in two to differentiate between BSR and SDS|
|Cut Stems with the initial browning of the stem will check field in a week to see if more distinct stem browning occurs. No presence of the bluish fuiting bodies of SDS at this point leaning to BSR|
Update Checked field 2 weeks after initial call and found fruiting bodies on roots and the stem remained water soaked in appearance. This now confirms SDS and management for future soybean crops should consider this disease.
|Note the bluish fruiting bodies|
|Note the absence of brown stem more water soaked appearance with SDS.|
