The Reality of Asian Soybean Rust: Lessons Learned from Three Years of Management

By Dr. Bob Kemerait
Associate Professor and Extension Plant Pathologist
University of Georgia Cooperative Extension



Asian soybean rust was first detected in the continental United States in November of 2004. Since that time, the disease has been found in a number of states where soybeans are produced, but has caused the most significant damage in states in the Southeast. In this presentation, Dr. Bob Kemerait addresses the reality of Asian soybean rust (biology, spread, detection, monitoring, management, and fungicde efficacy) as it relates to the experience of soybean producers in Georgia. The lessons learned through trial, error, and observation in a state like Georgia should serve as a good introduction for other states for the "reality" of Asian soybean rust.
