The asparagus rust in Iowa.
During the summer our attention was called to the appearance of Asparagus Rust on Muscatine Island by Mrs. Alice Walton Beatty. Early in September the rust was found in considerable quantities in one of the asparagus beds on the college farm; since then it has been observed at many points by ourselves and Mr. M. Cumming, in and about Ames. It was also reported to us from McBride, Iowa, by Mr. H. A. Mueller, in September, 1900, as being abundant at that place and at Mt. Pleasant by Mr. E. E. Hodson.
