Soybean Rust

Are we more likely to see some problems with soybean rust this summer since the crop will still be developing during the hurricane season. Are 30" rows a better bet than 15"rows.

thanks for your email. There is no indication row width has any affect on the spread of soy rust. Just make sure that sprayers have maximum coverage no matter what row width.

Good Luck, Steve
