This article presents information regarding soybean rust threat and plans to tackle this threat in the Southern States of the United States. Experts have seen its devastation in foreign lands and aren't taking the potential for an invasion lightly. Short of alarm, the strategic plan is to address the concerns of growers as much as it is a plan for after the rust arrives. In the upper Southeast, as in other parts of the U.S., experts, agents, consultants, state departments of agriculture, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture are preparing for an invasion.
