The University of Georgia has been looking at a lot of early-planted soybeans and trying to decide on continuing insect and disease sprays.
Sudden death syndrome, or SDS, has been observed in soybean fields in Indiana over the last week.
For the most part, soybean aphids have been a problem only in odd numbered years. Several other states have broken this two-year cycle, but it has held in Ohio for more than 10 years.

Afternoon Comments 08/29
The soy complex posted divergent moves Friday. Old-crop demand seemed to boost the expiring bean and meal contracts Friday morning. New crop beans were under pressure, whereas meal quotes edged upward. Meanwhile, losses posted in Asian palm oil prices apparently triggered a fresh breakdown in the soyoil pit. September soybean futures vaulted 15.75 cents to $10.895/bushel before the three-day weekend, while November futures slumped 4.5 cents to $10.2425. September soyoil plunged 0.60 cents to 32.04 cents/pound, whereas September soymeal surged $6.3 to $439.5/ton.
