(This amendment provides $50,000 GF to fund additional early detection and monitoring programs for Asian soybean rust. The fungus was identified in Virginia in October of 2006, and can reduce soybean yields by as much as 80.0 percent if left uncontrolled. With one-half million acres planted, soybeans are Virginia's largest acreage row crop and the largest crop export.)
