Soybean rust (Phakopsora pachyrhizi H. Sydow & Sydow) can be managed with the use of fungicides. However, early detection is required for its most effective management. Monitoring soybean fields and adjacent areas is recommended throughout the growing season.

Fungicide applications can reduce yield loss, depending on the plant developmental stage, time when soybean rust is detected, and fungicide application method.

Efficacy information for producers on fungicides is available through state university extension services. To this purpose we strongly recommend you to link to Websites that provide decision support for SBR management:
