Insect Management Strategies
Various insects feed on soybeans during every growth stage, from germination through pod fill. These pests can reduce yield and crop quality. Integrated pest management, or IPM, strategies allow farmers to cost-effectively manage insect pressure through tools like cultural practices, genetics and biotechnology, scouting and insecticide control. Research, resources and videos developed through soy checkoff funding provide guidance for effective IPM strategies that protect yield and quality.
