found in St. Pauls
ST. PAULS — Soybean rust, a disease spread by airborn fungus spores, was detected in a soybean crop near St. Pauls on Tuesday.
The disease grows on green foliage in moist climates and can cause leaf loss and lead to a lesser yield. It can take up to 20 days for the infection to develop to detectable levels, another seven to 14 days to spread to other leaves on the same plant and another 10 days to cause significant defoliation.
The current status of soybean rust in the U.S. can be found at http://sbr.ipmpipe.org/cgi-bin/sbr/public.cgi.
