MEETINGS TO DISCUSS SOYBEAN RUST PROBLEM
The Alabama Extension System has planned several meetings to discuss soybean rust. The destruction the airborne disease can cause is nothing short of astronomical. It can completely defoliate a crop in just two weeks. By the time a farmer knows he has it, it can be too late.
