Syngenta Crop Protection has launched its Syntinel RustTracker system, an early-warning web-based system that provides growers with tools to obtain information regarding outbreaks of Asian soybean rust and assess their potential for risk associated with the disease.

The Syntinel RustTracker uses GIS mapping technology in combination with information from Syngenta’s Syntinel spore traps, data collected from weather forecasts, and USDA’s sentinel plots, when they become available. The RustTracker is expected to help growers assess their potential for risk associated with rust.

Syngenta is an agribusiness committed to sustainable agriculture through innovative research and technology.
