Sudden death syndrome is a soil-borne fungal disease caused by Fusarium virguliforme. Spread throughout the soybean producing states, the fungus overwinters in soybean residue and soil.  Spores are survival structures that can withstand freezing and a variety of environmental condition for many years. When temperatures start to increase, the spores germinate and infect soybean roots.
