nematodes Cultural practices (rotation, tillage, planting date, etc.) Reduce plant stress (population, weed management, fertility) Fungicides Management Practices Variety selection Resistance - prevents colonization and disease development

SCN Management Guide, 1999 B. Matthews, ARS Management Practices Variety selection Resistance - reduces build up of inoculum Susceptible variety has large lesions

Resistant variety has smaller and yellowishgreen color lesions Management Practices Variety selection Seed quality - plant seed that is high quality Planting infected seed can inhibit germination, slow seedling growth, or introduce new pathogens into a field. Management Practices Manage weeds, insects, and nematodes

Weeds - increase inoculum - improve microclimate for spore production Desmodium species (tick trefoils) are an alternate source of some viruses Management Practices Manage weeds, insects, and nematodes Insects - source of inoculum - provide entry wounds for pathogens

Marlin E. Rice Management Practices Manage weeds, insects, and nematodes Nematodes - interact with other pathogens The presence of soybean cyst nematode can increase other soybean diseases like brown stem rot and sudden death syndrome. Management Practices Cultural practices

Crop rotation - prevents build up of inoculum Photo courtesy Dr. Randy Martin, Bioworks, inc. Destroyed/suppressed Photo by Brenda Collins, Http://glaucus.org.uk/FungiLC.html Competition for food Management Practices Cultural practices

Tillage - decreases surface residue (foliar disease inoculum) - conservation tillage increases soil moisture Management Practices Cultural practices Planting date - escape infection - escape severe disease Harvest date - remove plants from field before disease becomes problematic

Management Practices Reduce plant stress High populations - compete for light, water, and nutrients Heavy weed pressure - competition Fertility - adequate nitrogen and potassium Management Practices Fungicides

Seed treatments - protect roots from soilborne pathogens Management Practices Fungicides Foliar fungicides - stop infection and colonization of host Spore germination Syngenta

Penetration Growth Pustule formation Sporulation Management Practices Fungicides Foliar fungicides CONSIDERATIONS

Cropping history and percent surface crop residue affect the risk of disease. Many pathogens survive in crop residue, which can be a source of inoculum. Varieties vary in their susceptibility to diseases. Disease presence early in the season may result in greater yield loss than diseases that occur later in the season. Fungicides do not affect diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, or nematodes. Profitability of a fungicide application depends on the price of grain and the cost of application. Interrupting the disease cycle How does management interrupt the disease cycle?

Inoculum produced Survival Production of survival structures Symptoms Dispersal

Colonization Infection Interrupting the disease cycle Rotation; tillage; planting high quality seed Inoculum produced Survival Production of survival

structures Symptoms Dispersal Colonization Infection Interrupting the disease cycle Variety resistance; fungicides Inoculum

produced Survival Production of survival structures Symptoms Dispersal Colonization

Infection Summary The disease cycle for all pathogens is essentially the same. Effective management strategies break the disease cycle. An understanding of the disease cycle will help implement management strategies.
