St. Paul, MN (January 2018)—Educators and extension professionals can use this video to teach the complex life cycle of the fungus Phakopsora pachyrhizi, the aggressive soybean rust pathogen, which is capable of causing defoliation and significant yield loss. Soybean Rust: The Life Cycle of Phakopsora pachyrhizi is an authoritative presentation about the pathogen that causes disease in most soybean-growing regions worldwide.
Blending state-of-the-art computer animation with real-life, in-the-field videos and time-lapse photography, this teaching video illustrates the life cycle of the soybean rust fungus. Students and extension audiences will gain a clear understanding of the development and epidemiological spread of this disease, as well as measures to control it. Viewers will come to understand the complex interplay of fungal effectors and soybean defense proteins, as the video portrays the molecular “arms race” between the pathogen and its host plant.
