Insects feed on soybeans from the time seeds are planted until plants dry down for harvest, reducing yield and crop quality. Integrated pest management strategies allow farmers to cost-effectively manage insect pressure. IPM tools include scouting, cultural practices, genetics and biotechnology, and chemical controls. The soy checkoff funds research and development of tools and resources that provide guidance for effective IPM strategies that protect soybean yield and quality.
Different insects attack soybeans at all growth stages, hurting quality and yield. Hear from farmers, researchers and other industry representatives about strategies to monitor and control insect pressure. Join the conversation on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.
