Final Project Results

Benefit to Soybean Farmers

Soybean production has changed drastically in the past 10-15 years. The adoption of reduced tillage, Roundup Ready and early season soybean production has also caused changes in soybean insect management. Few would argue that soybean insect management has become even more important in recent years and the changes in production have resulted in a need for increased awareness of soybean insect pests. These changes in production have created a need to educate growers and other decision-makers on the proper methods for monitoring insects and increase the awareness of the proper management techniques for effective and economical insect control. We want to make sure Arkansas soybean producers’ money is wisely spent for insect management.
