Asian soybean rust (ASR), caused by Phakopsora pachyrhizi, is a destructive disease affecting soybean production. This study aimed to use a phosphite (30% of phosphorus and 20% of potassium) combined with L-α-free amino acids (Optimus®, Bioiberica, Spain) to boost soybean defense against P. pachyrhizi infection.
