Project Summary

This project will complete the development of a Minnesota specific Soybean Rust Early Warning System. This model system being developed and validated will use localized rust spore detection, national scale climate data and local weather conditions. After the model is completed soybean rust disease risk forecasts will be made available in season to Minnesota soybean growers.
