Frogeye leaf spot has been an important disease of soybean in southern states for several years, but its presence has been growing in northern soybean production areas over the past few years.  In 2010, strobilurin fungicide-resistant strains of the frogeye leaf spot pathogen were first identified in limited areas.  Currently, these fungicide-resistant strains can be commonly found across several states across the U.S.  This presentation will focus on management of this important disease with the use of fungicides and resistant varieties.
