Asian soybean rust and legume disease scouting: IPM-PIPE
So far this year, Asian soybean rust has not yet been detected north of the southern tier states. Weather events affect the spread and severity of disease and events such as hurricanes may blow spores produced on infected material further north from its overwintering grounds. Since the initial discovery in 2004 of Asian soybean rust in the United States, soybean rust has never been reported in the state of Michigan. Current information on the progress of soybean rust in the United States can be obtained at www.sbrusa.net.
