Large drop in Brazil soybean rust

Incidences of Asian soybean rust ( Phakopsora pachyrhizi) in Brazil plummeted in 2007/08 compared with the previous season. The number of cases was almost a quarter (24.4%) down to 2,101 by the end of the season, according to the Brazilian soybean agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa Soja.
