Iowa State University The Rust Report
Update - 5/7/08

Update from the South: No new reports from this last week. Although the ipmPIPE web page map has a positive find in Mexico, these locations should be "hatched" because rust can no longer be found in Mexico.  Like last week, soybean rust can currently be found on kudzu in six counties in Florida and one county in Texas.

Southern states looking for coral bean: In light of last week's report about the new host, coral bean, several states have been looking for this plant in their respective states.  From what I have heard to date is that coral bean is only found in Florida and Texas in natural stands.  It could be planted by home owners in the other states, but no other infected coral bean has been found outside of Florida.
