In 2005, U.S. agriculture faced potentially devastating losses from Asian Soybean Rust (ASR), a fungal disease that spreads airborne spores. Fungicides approved by the EPA can protect against ASR. In 2005, growers in 31 states planted about 72 million soybean acres worth about $17 billion. While favorable weather conditions limited losses due to ASR, it still threatens the soybean industry. In May 2005, a report described the USDA’s efforts to prepare for ASR’s entry. This report examines: (1) USDA’s strategy to minimize ASR’s effects in 2005 & the lessons learned to improve future efforts; & (2) USDA, EPA, & other’s efforts to develop, test, & license fungicides for ASR & to identify & breed soybeans that tolerate it.
