Iowa's sentinel plots are being planted so that we can monitor any development of soybean rust during 2006. During this growing season, sentinel plots are being established in 21 locations in Iowa (see map below) as part of coordinated national efforts funded by check-off dollars and federal funds. Most plots are located at Iowa State University research farms, where the rust will be monitored and scouted closely. Our cooperators are planting Iowa's sentinel plots early so they will be at a reproductive growth stage sooner.
