Abstract

We want to keep track of any movement of soybean rust so that we can inform and warn Iowa producers of any risk to their crop. Last year a spore tracking system was set up in the southern states as a part of soybean rust monitoring efforts. In some locations, spores were detected with the spore traps and the spore maps were generally consistent with the predicted spore map, according to reports presented last winter. In the North Central Region, spores also were detected with another type of spore trap.
