Summary: Fusarium root rot of soybean is a common disease that has few management options. This disease is often overlooked when more dominant and obvious diseases such as sudden death syndrome, SCN or Phytophthora root rot are present. Fusarium root rot can cause damping-off and reduce yields of soybean. Numerous Fusarium species may be involved and we usually do not know which species is the primary causal agent. This Fusarium root rot complex is a difficult disease to understand, especially all the factors involved in disease development. It is therefore a challenge to design management options for growers.
