Brief Project Summary:

The objective of this project is to monitor 15 disease monitoring sites (sentinel plots) across the state and data will be entered into the IPM PIPE database. Write weekly commentary that will be posted on the IPM PIPE Website and turn counties green or red on the IPM PIPE soybean rust map, depending on the presence or absence of soybean rust. The sentinel plots and any mobile scouting will occur if soybean rust is predicted, if a high amount of spores are detected in certain areas of the state, or if soybean rust is detected in an adjacent state.
