Resumen

JARVIE, J. Antony. A review of soybean rust from a South African perspective. S. Afr. j. sci. [online]. 2009, vol.105, n.3-4, pp.103-108. ISSN 1996-7489.

This review article describes the nature of the soybean rust pathogen, its interaction with the soybean host and documents some of the history of soybean rust in South Africa. Soybean rust has affected soybean cropping in parts of South Africa since 2001. The disease causes leaf lesions, which may progress to premature defoliation and ultimately result in grain yield loss in susceptible soybean genotypes. Chemical control measures have been successfully employed to limit commercial yield losses in South Africa; however, controlling the effects of this disease through host-resistance or tolerance mechanisms remains a long-term goal.

Palabras clave : Phakopsora pachyrhizi; Glycine max; chemical control; tolerance.
