ABSTRACT
This article reports that the confirmation of Asian soybean rust on April 27, 2005, by the University of Georgia's Plant Disease Clinic in Tifton, Georgia, marks the first report of the disease outside of Florida in 2005. When Seminole County, Georgia, extension coordinator Rome Ethredge asked a farmer where he might find volunteer soybeans growing, the farmer's answer not only pointed the Extension coordinator to the spot, but also said about the "rusty looking" of soybean rust. According to Philip Jost, University of Georgia Extension agronomist, for growers, this means that the likelihood of having problems with soybean rust has increased significantly.
