In late April, Iowa State University (ISU) will be testing the Iowa Soybean Rust Fast Track System to see if any adjustments need to be made before the 2005 crop season begins. This system ensures that soybean plant samples suspected of being infected with the fungus causing Asian soybean rust are quickly detected, moved into the diagnosis process, and confirmed as soon as possible. Fifty Iowa First Detectors, who have agreed to participate in the training exercise, will be randomly chosen. Participants will be sent a color image of soybean leaves with symptoms of Asian soybean rust.
