At the end of October 2005, soybean leaves of the variety “Huasteca 400” were collected at harvest. The leaves had symptoms and signs of low incidence soybean rust in Tamuin, State of San Luis Potosi, and in Altamira, State of Tamaulipas, both municipalities within the region called “huasteca”.

Samples collected were processed at the molecular mycology and biology laboratory of the National Phytosanitary Reference Centre, with positive results for soybean rust (Phakopsora pachyrhizi).

The National Service for Agri-Food Health, Safety and Quality, through the Plant Health Directorate, has applied a plan to decrease damage and risk of spreading the soybean rust, through outreach activities aimed at monitoring, identifying and controlling the disease.
