This study aimed to assess in two seasons, the response of soybean cultivars subjected to different row spacings and control programs under Phakopsora pachyrhizi Sidow natural pressure. The research was carried out at the seasons 07/08 and 08/09. The main plots were composed of the row spacings of 40, 50 and 60cm and the split plots corresponded to the cultivars A 8000 RG and A 6001 RG. The control programs were the split split plots.The reduction of row spacing allowed more conditions for the rust establishment and progress for both cultivars and less effective control. The best control response was verified using the program with an application in R1 and a second application, 25 days after the first one. The row spacing of 60cm gave lower AUDPC values and higher productivity.
