Despite a few chuckles from an all-business New York City crowd about a strange new term -- soybean rust -- Agriculture Online walked away with a prestigious publishing industry award for its innovative coverage of the disease on March 15.

Agriculture Online won the Integration with Print category of Media Industry Newsletter's ("min") Best of the Web Awards for its work with StopSoybeanRust.com, a joint venture between Successful Farming's Agriculture Online and Vance Publishing Corporation. The Web site features timely news coverage and management advice about soybean rust, which was identified in the U.S. last year.

"The Web site, StopSoybeanRust.com, has been the right communications tool for a time-sensitive topic like soybean rust, but we also saw the need to get the word out through the magazine, where we have the widest reach with farmers. I think the award shows how committed we have been to helping farmers stay informed stay on this big issue," said Agriculture Online Editor John Walter.

Agriculture Online's Farmers for the Future also received an honorable mention in the Microsite/Customized Web site category at the min day awards program. Farmers for the Future is a special section Agriculture Online devoted to issues of concern to young and beginning farmers.
