Distribution & Management of Red Crown Rot

Grants and Contracts Details


Red crown rot, caused by the fungus Calonectria ilicicola, was discovered for the first time in Kentucky in September 2021 in soybean fields in Graves County, KY. The true distribution of red crown rot is not known; thus, research is being proposed to survey Kentucky soybean fields to gain a better understanding of its distribution in the state. Currently, little is known about management of this disease in more northern states, such as Kentucky (until recently, this disease only was known to occur in states in the deep southern U.S.). Field research to evaluate the management effects of fungicide seed treatments and planting date on red crown rot will be conducted as well.
