Effect of Soybean Seed Treatments on Seed Emergence and Yield
The purpose of this study was to evaluate soybean seed treatments on disease pressure. There have been experimental plots for seed treatment evaluation at the McNay Research Farm for the last two years. The McNay farm was selected for seed treatment experimental plots because it exhibited a high level of Phytophthora damping off in the spring of 1999. The objective of this study is to determine the effect of different seed treatments on seedling diseases under high disease pressure as expressed by stand establishment, plant vigor, and harvest yield.
