Brief Project Summary:

The goal of this project is to address the concern that insect pests are causing increasing economic losses to the Virginia soybean crop. The research group will:
1) Evaluate the use of blacklight traps for monitoring stink bug populations in an effort to improve timing of scouting and control measures.
2) Determine the relative toxicity of selected conventional and organic insecticides for control of stink bug nymphs and adults.
3) Develop management options for minimizing insect damage to the Virginia soybean crop.
