Soybean Rust Update

Bob Mulrooney, Extension Plant Pathologist;

Soybean rust can currently be found on kudzu in six counties in Florida and one county in Texas. Soybean sentinel plots are being established throughout the Gulf Coast region. Kudzu is also greening-up rapidly in this area of the country. Scientists in the South are now looking at native stands of coral bean, the new host, to see if any soybean rust can be found. To date coral bean can be found in TX, LA and FL.
