11Spread of Soybean RustNatural –windborne urediniospores produced in large quantities under moderate temperatures and high humidity. Life cycle ~7-10 days, infection to spore production.Artificial – movement of infected live plants, leaf material, pods, and stems.Soybean Rust is not seed borne.Soybean Rust will not over winter on dead plants.

16Yield Loss From Soybean Rust Is a Result Of: Premature defoliationIncrease in number of unfilled pods/plantDecrease in # of seeds/plantDecrease in seed weightDecrease in germinability of seedYield losses begin at approx. 3% severity

27Brand New Editions Be ready with effective scouting
28Disease Scouting for Soybean Rust** Typical disease patternsRandom spots in field with diffuse borders **Field edgesWhole field**PatternedHeadlands, historical, mechanicalLow / high spots** Expect these patterns for rust
29Assessment of Disease Incidence: Severity: The number of plants (or units) affected by disease with in a populationie 47 of 100 plants diseased= 47% incidenceie 34 of 100 leaflets diseased= 34% incidenceSeverity:The measure of actual damage done by diseaseSome keys measure severity of the whole plantSome keys measure severity on infected leaves
30Assessment of Rust Severity Researchers generally assess rust disease as disease severity of key leaves.Rust pustules only occupy a maximum of 37% of the area on a leaf. This is equivalent to 100% infection of that leaf.
31Rust Severity Assessment Key A= actual amount of tissue occupied by pustules (Cobb scale)B= equivalent damage to leaf (Modified Cobb)* If A=18.5% area occupied by pustules, this is equivalent to B=50% damage to the leaf*
32Disease Scouting for Soybean Rust Incidence U of I currently recommends determining incidence rather than severity for scouting protocol.Examine 20 plants in 5 random locations in a field.Note: one plant with any amount of rust in 100 plants = 1% incidence
33Soybean Rust Scouting Field Pattern Scout in a zig-zag pattern in the field making observations of 20 plants in 5 locations
34Illinois Scouting – “Look Low As You Go” When scouting examine the lower quarter of soybean plantsExamine the undersides of leaves for pustules.If you suspect rustcollect 20 leaflets exhibiting symptoms.Place flat, dry leaflets between paper towels.Double bag suspect leaflets in zip lock bags.Clearly label sample.
35IL Extension Distance Diagnostics (DDDI Available in all Units in Illinois) Sample Processdigital images submitted for you by UnitDiagnosis reply to UnitSamples may then require submission to U of I Plant Clinic.
36IL Extension Distance Diagnostics (DDDI Available in all Units in Illinois) No fee for DDDI samples.Plant Clinic fee ($12.50) paid by ISPOB if sample is pre-screened with DDDIExpect to pay overnight shipping prior to detection in state.
37Foliar Symptoms Soybean Rust not distinguishing must look closer
38Symptoms & Signs of Soybean Rust Look for pustules and chlorosis on undersides of lower leaves before flowering.Severity increases with time and rainfall – lesions can develop on all leaves followed by defoliationObserve chlorosisLook at underside of leavesObserve pustules with hand lens

47Fungicides Strategy for Soybean Rust Management in S. America, S Fungicides Strategy for Soybean Rust Management in S. America, S. AfricaGeneral Brazil (J. Yorinori):Application at first detectionSecond spray days later for protective fungicides20-25 days later for protective/curative fungicides.Timing of the first spray depends on when the first infection is detected, weather conditions, and mode of action of the fungicideGeneral Zimbabwe (C. Levy, M. Miles, G. Hartman):Apply first spray soon after floweringApply second application days laterThird application only in a severe epidemic
48Fungicide Spray Recommendations (lessons from other countries) Protectant (strobilurins,chloronitriles): Apply prior to infection. Strobilurins loose effectiveness after 3-5% severity. Strobilurins no more than once /seasonCurative (triazoles): Apply when rust is present. After 10% severity triazoles may not provide full yield protection.
49What Should We Do in Illinois? Scenario A:Disease ExpectedRust expected, not yet presentApply Protectant Fungicide (Benzonitriles, Strobilurins)Disease still expected now need 2nd sprayApply Curative (Triazole)
50What Should We Do in Illinois? Scenario BDisease expected & develops after 1st applicationDisease expected not yet presentStrobilurin, BenzonitrilesDisease expected or now present need 2nd sprayTriazoleDisease still present need 3rd applicationBenzonitriles (PHI), Triazole
