During this past week, we have seen an increase of soybean rust reported in Florida and adjacent states. The disease was found in sentinel plots located in Florida and southeastern Alabama. The disease also was found in another Florida county on kudzu plants. Although the disease has been found in two other states besides Florida, the new findings are around the Florida Panhandle. The increased activities were predicted by computer models during the last two weeks; more findings are predicted because the weather has been suitable for soybean rust development there.
