Frogeye Leaf Spot
Field Report July 20, 2016: Frogeye leaf spot is a common foliar disease in N.C. soybeans especially in our Northeastern and Piedmont counties. The disease is most serious during periods of warm, humid weather which means the weather patterns over the last few weeks make for ideal frogeye leaf spot conditions. As beans begin to enter reproductive growth, scouting for FLS will be important. Click on the above link to find out what you need to be looking for!
