2007 National Soybean Rust Symposium to be held in Louisville, KY

May 24, 2007

St. Paul, Minn. (May 24, 2007) -- The American Phytopathological Society (APS), in cooperation with related organizations, will present the 2007 National Soybean Rust Symposium, December 12-14, 2007 at the Marriott Louisville Downtown Hotel in Louisville, KY.

"This symposium is truly unique in that it brings together a diverse audience all with a common interest," said Raymond Schneider, symposium coordinator and plant pathology professor with the Louisiana State University AgCenter. Leaders in state and federal government, grower organizations, international institutions, research, extension, crop consulting, agribusiness, and others will collectively hear results, determine progress, and share perspectives on soybean rust in the 2007 growing season.

"The 2007 symposium will examine Asian soybean rust from virtually every angle," said Schneider. "In addition to opportunities to network and explore new areas of investigation, the symposium will feature presentations and discussions on such topics as molecular biology and genetics, development of disease resistant varieties, use of fungicides, disease management strategies and tactics, computer simulations, and other areas of importance. New this year will be a session devoted to experiences and perceptions of producers and crop consultants," he said.

Proceedings from the 2005 and the 2006 soybean rust symposium are available on the Plant Management Network's Soybean Rust Information Center (www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/infocenter).

APS is a non-profit, professional scientific organization. The research of the organization's 5,000 worldwide members advances the understanding of the science of plant pathology and its application to plant health.
