Abstract

Sclerotinia stem rot of soybeans (also known as white mold) is caused by a soil-borne fungus and has become a serious problem in northern Iowa. Another fungus, Sporidesmium sclerotivorum, acts as a parasite of the sclerotia and this research tested whether this mycoparasite could act as an effective deterrent to the soybean stem rot pathogen.
