Project Summary

This project will provide in-field education activities for producers and other ag professionals at the Southwest Minnesota location (SROC, Lamberton, MN). This project will also increase standardization of University of Minnesota insecticide and fungicide trials in soybean. This standardization will allow comparisons of both pesticide performance and soybean arthropod and pathogen populations (including resistance) from year to year. A standardized fact sheet format will improve quality and reduce confusion. Finally, a pilot study on the influence of volunteer soybeans on soybean aphid and SCN populations will be conducted at two locations.

Project Objectives

1. Conduct in-field educational activities to increase management expertise of soybean producers in SW Minnesota.
2. Begin use of seed treatments to develop a long term database of pest populations and product performance and pest resistance.
3. Develop a standard format and review process for soybean entomology fact sheets.
4. Examine the effects of volunteer soybeans on soybean aphid populations and soybean cyst nematode.
