impact of soybean rust yield impact
Impact of Soybean RustYield Impact
  • Yield losses in soybeans – reported to be 10 to 50% of area yield where established, up to 90% or greater in selected fields
  • Minor crop impact – soybean rust pathogen has wide host range on leguminous crops – lima beans, black-eyed peas, kidney beans, green beans, etc.
impact of soybean rust economic impact
Impact of Soybean Rust Economic Impact
  • Economic impact on U.S. Economy – estimated by USDA/ERS in April 2004:

www.ers.usda.gov

    • Yield Impacts from 0.9% to -9.5% (availability of fungicides & application equipment assumed)
    • Benefits of higher prices for soybeans and corn
    • Net losses of $0.2 to 2.0 billion/year

requests for me too quarantine exemptions for soybean rust

Requests for “me too” Quarantine Exemptions for soybean rust

Apply for all 7 fungicides requested by SD & MN

Follow EPA instructions for citing MN & SD quarantine exemption

limits of mn sd quarantine exemptions

Limits of MN & SD Quarantine Exemptions

Treat no more that 50% soybean acreage

(EPA will consider 100% usage)

Maximum of 2 applications total

(EPA will consider 3 applications total)

Rationale needed for greater usage

longer season varieties

environment more conducive to disease

closer to overwintering sites

why so many fungicides
Why So Many Fungicides?
  • Supply, Supply, Supply!!
  • Fungicide resistance management
  • Uncertain fungicide effectiveness
fungicide resistance action committee frac www frac info

Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC)www.frac.info

For Strobilurins (azoxystrobin, pyraclostrobin, trifloxystrobin)

used alone in only 1/3 of applications

used in mixes in only 1/2 of applications

For Triazoles (propiconazole, tebuconazole, myclobutanil, tetraconazole)

alternate with other chemistries if possible
