National Soybean Rust Symposium to be held in Nashville

St. Paul, Minn. (October 17, 2005) The American Phytopathological Society (APS), in co-operation with related organizations, will hold a National Soybean Rust Symposium, November 15-16, 2005 at the Renaissance Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.

"This symposium will offer the latest and best research and information on soybean rust acquired during North America's first crop season with the disease," said Gary Bergstrom, professor of plant pathology, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. "By bringing together growers and leaders from government, academia, and industry to share information and perspectives gathered from this past year, we will be able to identify priorities on how best to respond to this disease in the next growing season," Bergstrom said. Attendees will also have the opportunity to review the U.S. soybean rust strategic plan and coordinated framework.

The technical program will include discussion of the latest information on:

  • Detection and prediction systems for soybean rust How well did they work in 2005?
  • Fungicide efficacy and application studies
  • Pathogen genetics What does the sequence say?
  • Hot resistance Sources of partial resistance to soybean rust
  • Marker-assisted selection What's in progress?
  • Pathogen biology Epidemiology, additional hosts, inoculum sources

The symposium will also offer posters on the latest research and efforts on soybean rust including:

  • Detection, prediction, and diagnostics for soybean rust
  • Soybean rust management
  • Germplasm Enhancement
  • Biotechnology of soybean rust

The technical program begins at 8 a.m. Eastern Time (9 a.m. CT) on November 15 and ends at noon on November 16. The full program can be found at www.apsnet.org/online/sbr.
