The American Phytopathological Society (APS), in cooperation with related organizations, will present the 2009 National Soybean Rust Symposium, Dec. 9-11, in New Orleans. This symposium is a national forum in which knowledge acquired during the first five years of soybean rust research will be discussed and strategic plans for research and response in future years will be defined.

Leaders representing the soybean commodity through the Iowa Soybean Association, North Central Soybean Research Program, United Soybean Board, Certified Crop Advisors, crop protection industry, numerous soybean pathologists from land-grant universities across the South and Midwest, and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, as well as representation from Canadian counterparts from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, have worked closely with APS to plan this symposium. Deadlines for early registration, poster abstract submission and hotel reservations are quickly approaching.
