Soybean Rust: Lessons Learned from the Pandemic in Brazil highlights critical advances from the research of the late Dr. José Tadashi Yorinori, who developed educational and control methods for this devastating disease. An international team of editors have updated and extended Dr. Yorinori’s writings to help realize his dream of publishing a book that documents his years of work with soybean rust in Brazil.

Dr. Yorinori’s documentation of this story provides comprehensive details about soybean rust, beginning with the discovery of the pathogen on soybeans in Brazil in 2001 and the events that followed as he and others worked to understand and control the disease. Events covered include the differentiation of the two known pathogens, the history and economic impact of the disease in Brazil, and the management techniques that were studied and introduced as the result of the coordinated work of many professionals. These management techniques successfully curbed the spread of soybean rust in Brazil and provided a foundation for effectively managing the disease when it spread to the United States only 3 years later.

In addition to telling an engaging story, Soybean Rust will be useful as a textbook and in supporting the learning of young professionals. The details of this adventure in plant pathology highlight the importance of plant pathology in managing disease worldwide.
