Soybean Rust Monitoring Websites

As many of you may know, University of Kentucky Plant Pathology Extension maintains and continually updates a page dedicated to information regarding Soybean Rust (Phakopsora pachyrhizi).

Below is a map showing areas scouted for SBR, along with areas where rust has been confirmed. The risk for SBR in Kentucky soybean is presently very low. So far this year, confirmed findings have only been found in the Gulf Coast regions of Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas, as well as extreme southern Georgia.

Continually updated maps can be found here.
