Companies, Pathologists Join Hands to Identify Genetic Resistance to Soybean Rust

SBR can cause significant yield reduction according to Glen Hartman, a USDA-ARS, a research plant pathologist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that focuses on soybean diseases and pests. Collaborating with pathologists is one of the strategies being adopted by companies in the Latin America soybean rust control market to generate on the spot information about how to diagnose, manage, and reduce the impact of soybean rust. Companies are taking cues from research studies that involve the implementation of a program, which requires farmers to maintain a 90-day period free of soybeans before the next summer planting. This is being linked with reducing the over-seasoning production of spores by the causal fungus. Companies and private university programs are screening genetic material to identify new sources and combine known sources of genetic resistance to soybean rust.

Extensive Use of Fungicides with Active Ingredients for Rust in Cereals

Novel fungicides with active ingredients are being developed by manufacturers. Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd. - a Japan-based chemical company, has received the U.S. and Canadian regulatory approval for the registration of its new fungicide INDIFLIN® (inpyrfluxam) and two products utilizing this new fungicide as an active ingredient. Companies in the Latin America soybean rust control market are taking cues from such innovations to create a pipeline of active ingredients and products that can be submitted for registration in major markets.

In-house and external evaluations are being conducted by companies in the Latin America soybean rust control market to demonstrate the efficacy of fungicides with active ingredients against Asian soybean rust. Innovative fungicides are also being extended for use in rust on cereals, scab on apples, and foliar blight on sugar beets.

Plant Pandemics Being Prevented with Use of Predictive Disease Modelling Techniques

The prevention of plant pandemics is becoming essential after the COVID-19 outbreak. The real-time information sharing and data analytics is playing a key role in early detection of plant disease outbreaks. Companies in the Latin America soybean rust control market are capitalizing on this opportunity, since plant diseases do not stop at national borders and miles of oceans do not prevent their spread either. This explains why the market is expected to reach US$ 4.5 Bn by the end of the forecast period.

Techniques such as plant disease surveillance, global predictive disease modelling, and improved detection systems are contributing to the growth of the Latin America soybean rust control market.

Planting Date, Maturity Influences Impact of Soybean Rust in Some Regions

In Latin America, significant rust development is associated with rain events. Apart from genetic resistance and cultural practices, the issue of rust has triggered the need of chemical & biological control. Such trends are favoring companies in the Latin America soybean rust control market. The use of foliar fungicides to manage this disease plays a critical role if the rust arrives before or during the susceptible development stages in soybean crop, which is from flowering through full seed.

Companies in the Latin America soybean rust control market are boosting their production capabilities in fungicides to help farmers manage soybean rust. However, it has been found that when fungicides are applied after 10% disease severity, the effectiveness of the fungicide is significantly reduced. This has led to the growing awareness regarding planting date and maturity, which influences the impact of soybean rust in some regions.

Preference for Outstanding Biological Performance, Favorable Regulatory Profile in Fungicides

While the global demand for high quality food increases, fungi present a major reason for plant and yield damage among farmers in Latin America, causing a threat for high yields & food supplies in the region. BASF - a Germany-based multinational chemicals company, is gaining recognition for a strong record of success in developing fungicide classes. Companies in the Latin America soybean rust control market are taking cues from such findings and establishing continuous research for new active ingredients in fungicides that meet future needs of farmers.

Manufacturers are taking efforts to develop fungicides that deliver outstanding biological performance and a favorable regulatory profile that aligns with disease control. Thus, to expand revenue streams, manufacturers are innovating in fungicides that not only protect soybean but also grains and specialty crops.
