Attendees enjoyed the breadth of information that was covered during the National Soybean Rust Symposium.


Breakout sessions provided an opportunity for all attendees to share their experiences with soybean rust.


Billy Wayne Sellers, a grower from Baxley, Georgia, updated the group on his experiences as the first farmer to find soybean rust in his fields.


Merle Pierson, USDA Deputy Undersecretary for Research, Education and Economics, welcomed attendees to the session.


Posters were available for review throughout the meeting covering the biology of soybean rust; detection, predication and diagnostics for soybean rust; germplasm enhancement; and soybean rust management.


Breaks and luncheons were actively utilized by attendees for networking and sharing of experiences about the first year of soybean rust in the U.S.
