During the past week, soybean rust was found for the first time infecting a commercial soybean field in southern Alabama, 1 mile northwest of a sentinel plot that was found to be infected three weeks earlier. Earlier this week, it was confirmed in a sentinel plot in George County, southeastern Mississippi, at very low levels. In the Alabama field, the disease level was also at very low levels, and the farmer has sprayed the field during the past weekend. The disease was also found in a second sentinel plot in Georgia.
