After all the excitement about Asian soybean rust this time last year, the 2005 growing season turned out to be somewhat disappointing . . . at least from a plant pathologist's point of view! Jokes aside though, the following is a recap of what happened with Asian soybean rust in the United States in 2005 and so far in 2006. Asian soybean rust was first reported in 2005 in the United States on February 24, on kudzu near Tampa, Florida. It was another two months, April 27, before the second report of the disease was made in Georgia on volunteer soybeans. After the infected plants were closely examined for a short period, they were destroyed.
