Description
 
In late 2004, Asian Soybean Rust (ASR) was discovered in the U.S. in 9 southern states. ASR is a harmful disease that can infect over 90 host plant species, including dry beans & peas. ASR arrived in the U.S. too late in the crop year to have any effect on soybean production in 2004. This report determines: (1) the USDA efforts to develop & implement an ASR surveillance strategy to identify & protect against ASR’s entry into the U.S. & to test & verify suspect cases; (2) USDA’s strategy for minimizing the effects of ASR in the U.S.; & (3) the progress that USDA, the EPA, & others have made in developing, testing, & licensing fungicides to treat ASR; & in identifying & breeding ASR-resistant or -tolerant soybeans.
