Soybean Rust Scouting Resources

University of Illinois Extension has several printed resources that can help you when scouting soybeans in general or soybean rust specifically. They are available online at www.pubsplus.uiuc.edu or by calling 800-345-6087. First, all soybean producers and scouts should have a Field Crop Scouting Guide (X880d, 236 pages, $55). Also, we have produced a handy soybean disease pocket guide (C1380 Pocket Guide to Soybean Diseases, 47 pages, $14.95), and specifically for soybean rust, a disease assessment tool (X881 Soybean Rust Assessment Tool, $8.99) as well as a hand lens that you will need in your soybean rust scouting endeavors (X882 Folding Pocket Magnifier, 20X, $29.99). Also, a new Extension Report on Plant Disease #1002, Characteristics of Fungicides for Field Crops is a good resource for making fungicide decisions.--Suzanne Bissonnette
