Soybean Rust Update

Bob Mulrooney, Extension Plant Pathologist;

On April 10th, all green tissue from a soybean rust-infected kudzu vine in Mobile, Alabama was removed. This was the only “known” rust-infected site in Alabama. At this time the disease can only be found in Florida. Soybean rust is still active on kudzu in six counties in Florida. Soybean sentinel plots are beginning to be planted in some of the Gulf Coast states. Kudzu is also greening-up rapidly in this region of the country.
