Asian Soybean Rust The Iowa Soybean Rust Team is offering a video program on Asian Soybean
Rust. It will air on Friday, March 11 from 10 a.m. to Noon. The two
hour program will feature several ISU crop experts, along with
representatives from the Iowa Department of Ag and Land Stewardship
and the Iowa Soybean Association. The purpose of this program is to
give Iowa soybean producers and ag professionals a "status report"
on the disease and, most importantly, an opportunity to ask
questions. Each expert will provide a short presentation and then
answer questions. The program is being offered via the web (see
next paragraph) for individual viewing and at county Extension
offices. Please contact your local ISU Extension office if you plan
to view the program there.
