Asian Soybean Rust on Legume Vegetables: A Homeowner's Guide to Management

Publication Number: P2393
View as PDF: P2393.pdf

Asian soybean rust was first found in the southeastern United States in 2004 in southern Louisiana, Mississippi, and seven other southern states. We think the fungus spores were blown in from South America by Hurricane Ivan. The fungus has not yet become firmly established in the United States. It should take three or more years before the disease becomes widespread. We are closely watching this potentially devastating soybean disease, and we have distributed management and control plans to soybean growers.

This publication alerts homeowners and small growers of the potential for soybean rust damage to commonly grown vegetable crops. Download the PDF above.
