Widespread. Fast. Unpredictable
Stop Pythium threats before they impact yield.


Pythium is prevalent in almost all cultivated soils.

Pythium remains dormant in the soil across nearly all soybean geographies in the U.S.

  • Active season long in soils 32–85° F
  • Causes seedling and root rot, leading to pre- and postemergence damping-off
  • Infected seedlings have water-soaked lesions on the hypocotyl or cotyledons that develop into brown, soft rot

Pythium is fast.

Pythium strikes before growers finish planting.

Pythium species act extremely fast and begin attacking the host soybean plant within 90 minutes of planting. - Stanghellini ME and Hancock JG, 1971a.


Pythium is unpredictable.

A diverse set of Pythium species exist, with temperature and environmental conditions triggering which species attack.


A broad range of Pythium species can strike in a variety of temperature and environmental conditions. This volatility means any region could be susceptible to Pythium threats.
