ISAAA Inc. tackles the role of biotech crops in food security, climate
change mitigation, and sustainability with a new infographic series titled
Future Crops. The first installment focuses on Rust-Resistant Soybean, a
biotech solution being developed by 2Blades and partners to combat a major
threat to Africa's growing soybean industry-Asian Soybean Rust (ASR).

This fast-spreading fungal disease, caused by Phakopsora pachyrhizi, can
devastate crops, wiping out up to 90% of yields in just three weeks. Thus,
it is considered as the biggest culprit behind soybean losses in Africa.

The new ISAAA infographic, Rust-Resistant Soybean, illustrates how experts
are leveraging biotechnology to develop soybeans resistant to ASR, offering
a crucial solution for African farmers.
