This article reports that on the underside of a soybean leaf, the pustules look like eruptions of small volcanoes. Out in the field, it can often be confused for a number of look-alike soybean diseases. From the roadside this past fall, even soybean fields confirmed with Asian soybean rust looked healthy. Simply put, Asian soybean rust is difficult to identify. It lives just above the microscopic level. However, its effect on soybeans in Africa and South America--and its ability to damage the U.S. soybean industry--is a straightforward tale of real and potential destruction.
