In the coming season, forecasting or modeling of rust spore movement has been proposed to provide producers with a tool for rust management. There is a possibility of spore maps being used to guide our scouts if the model is implemented. This article addresses two related aspects: (1) how soybean rust spreads from southern overwintering regions to northern soybean production regions; (2) how to read spore forecasting maps that will be posted on the Web to help us scout soybean rust during the coming growing season.
