Project Summary

The goal of this research project is to protect soybean yields by optimizing productivity and improving pest management strategies. This project will evaluate existing and emerging insect suppression tactics, like insecticides and host plant resistance, to protect yield and develop a suitable management plan. Insecticides will be evaluated and research findings will be communicated to Iowa soybean growers as part of the Extension educational program.

Project Objectives

1. Evaluate existing and emerging insect suppression tactics, like insecticides and host plant resistance, to protect yield and develop a suitable management plan.
2. Communicate findings to Iowa soybean growers as part of the Extension educational program.
