This article reports that the University of Georgia farm experts will soon begin planting soybean plots throughout Georgia to act as early detectors for an aggressive crop disease. Asian Soybean Rust was reported in the U.S. in November. Tropical storms in September are believed to have picked up spores in South America and delivered them to the Southeastem states. It was first reported in soybean research plots in Louisiana. Later, it was identified in farm fields in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, South Carolina and Tennessee. The disease hit late in the 2004 growing season. It didn't cause any damage to the crop. But Southeastem soybean farmers may not be as lucky this year, says Bob Kemerait, a plant pathologist with the UGA Extension Service.
