The article reports that the American Soybean Association has received confirmation from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal Plant Health Inspection Service that Asian Soybean Rust has been found on soybean leaf samples collected from two research plots near Baton Rouge. Louisiana. Soybean rust has the potential to cause large crop and economic losses to soybean growers and associated industries. Soybean rust poses no health risk to humans or animals. Soybean rust attacks the foliage of soybean plants causing the leaves to drop early, which inhibits pod setting and reduces yield.
