The article reports on the late-season new Asian soybean rust disease in the United States, particularly in North and South Carolina. In the Carolinas, there are confirmations about soybean rust. Eighteen counties in North Carolina and twenty-two counties in South Carolina have reported of soybean rust. There is a need to record the levels of rust in different counties to know how widespread it is. During the planting season of soybean, North Carolina had some weather damage problems, which resulted in cloudy and humid weather. This weather is best for various kinds of soybean diseases.
