In 2004, the Soybean Rust Fast Track System was put in place to ensure rapid identification of soybean rust through First Detectors and Triage Team Members. Over the past four years, more than 700 individuals were trained as First Detectors or Triage Members as part of the Iowa Soybean Rust Fast Track System. While soybean rust did not infect fields in Iowa until late 2007, we feel that the Fast Track System training helped Iowa growers and agribusinesses through many of the unknowns surrounding soybean rust.
