A "test" of the Asian Soybean Fast Track System (Figure 1) was conducted in late April by randomly selecting 40 of the nearly 500 Iowa First Detectors (www.plantpath.iastate.edu/soybeanrust/firstdetectors) and sending these individuals color images of soybean leaves with symptoms of Asian soybean rust. "This exercise (test) was of critical importance to ensure effective and timely communication among key participants in the Fast Track System, namely the Iowa First Detectors, Triage Team members (who are mostly ISU Extension specialists), and the Iowa State University Plant Disease Clinic," stated David Wright, Director of Production Technology, Iowa Soybean Promotion Board and member of the Iowa Soybean Rust Team.
