Insect Management

May 2024

Insects attack soybeans at every growth stage, from when seeds are planted until they are harvested. That feeding can reduce yield and crop quality. Integrated pest management strategies help farmers minimize the impact of the insects that show up in their soybean fields. IPM tools include scouting, cultural practices, genetics and biotechnology, and chemical control. A wealth of research, resources, tool and videos developed with soy checkoff support guide effective IPM strategies to protect soybean yield and quality.
