Brief Project Summary:

This project’s overall objective and goal is to implement a monitoring system for Asian soybean rust in the southwestern part of South Carolina. The monitoring system is a safety net that will help identify when rust is present in the state, allowing soybean growers ample time to make management decisions for their farms.

Key Benefactors:
farmers, agronomists, extension agents

Information And Results
Project Deliverables

Results from the monitoring program will be reported to growers, agricultural industry professionals, and Clemson Extension personnel through weekly email news notes during the months of August – October. Information will also be reported to the SC Soybean Board through the expected quarterly reports.

Final Project Results

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
