The identification of Asian soybean rust in Paraguay in 2001(Morel and Yorinori, 2002) and its spread to over 90% of the soybean production in Brazil through the 2003 season has heightened the awareness that this disease will soon be a threat to production on the continental USA. With the yield losses this disease can cause it will have a big impact on the profitability of soybean production.
