Interpretive Summary: Charcoal rot of soybean is an important but commonly misidentified disease and very few summary articles exist on this pathosystem. Research conducted over the last 10 years has improved our understanding of the environment conducive to disease development, host resistance and improved disease diagnosis and management. This article summarizes the currently available research with an emphasis on disease management.
