Cercospora blight

Cercospora kikuchi

Plants infected early from diseased seed may lose their cotyledons, become stunted, or die.
Loss of leaf tissue or entire leaves may occur. Extensive blighting of fields is common with severe infections.
Defoliation may reduce yield if disease occurs early relative to pod fill. Significant yield loss is more common in southern states than in northern and central states.
Purple seed stain may reduce quality and marketability of soybeans. Severely stained seed may be docked at the elevator, depending on percent of seed affected.
