The latest regarding risks for and management of iron deficiency chlorosis (IDC) in soybeans

Drs. Dan Kaiser and Seth Naeve discussed iron deficiency chlorosis (IDC) in soybean on today’s episode. IDC is a result of the plant not being able to take up sufficient amounts of iron, which results in leaf yellowing with leaf veins remaining dark green. Kaiser and Naeve discussed soil conditions across the state that can result in IDC that result in high pH conditions that limit the availability of iron such as compaction and soil drainage.
