Like most crops, soybeans are vulnerable to diseases caused by seedborne pathogens. These diseases can cause significant yield loss, reduce seed quality, and/or create obstacles to seed export because of phytosanitary concerns. Many microorganisms can be seedborne, but relatively few of them have a consistent economic impact. In this presentation, we will discuss how microorganisms can have different types of associations with seeds and which ones are important in soybeans. The presentation also briefly covers the methods used to detect some of the seedborne pathogens in soybean and a few management tips.
