Identifying Soybean Rust Guide- Spanish Version

A free pocket-sized soybean rust ID card, published last year for soybean growers throughout the country, is now available in Spanish.  Funded through Ohio Soybean Council soybean check-off dollars and federal grants, is the result of a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food and 22 land-grant universities, including Ohio State University Extension. Both English and Spanish versions of the ID card can be obtained by contacting Ohio State University research and Extension plant pathologist Anne Dorrance at (330) 202-3560, or e-mail dorrance.1@osu.edu
