Soybean rust (Asian rust) is a disease that occurs in soy cultures, negatively affecting pod formation and final grain weight and reducing value and product quality. Early identification of fungus in the plants prevents severe farming losses and spread to neighboring cultures. In this paper, a fast response sensor was developed based on surface plasmon resonance to detect Asian rust in soybean leaf extract at early stages of the disease. The antibody anti-Phakopsora pachyrhizi (pathogen) was… CONTINUE READING
