Pulse School: Which Pulse Diseases Should You Be Concerned About?

As we head into the 2012 growing season it’s important to know just what we’re up against in terms of disease threats on the horizon for our pulse crops. Knowing the history of the land your planting into as well as disease activity in your area can be important factors in assessing your risk. Being aware and prepared and having a plan can help you to avoid some potentially hefty losses.  Disease pressure is one of the greatest yield robbers in pulse crops.

Disease identification is the first step in the disease management process.  Once you identify the disease and the pressure levels you can make better decisions on the fungicide you need to be using.  Managing your disease pressure with fungicides is incredibly important in pulse crops.
