Brief Project Summary:

This objective will:
1) Use sentinel plots, research locations, producers' fields, and mobile scouting sites, to develop estimates of diseases and pests present, disease severity and associated yield loss.
2) Continue regular surveys of soybean aphids and correlate in-field densities with aphid captures in suction traps. Where possible, determine impact of insect injury on yield using estimates from insecticide-treated and non-treated areas/plots; and
3) Compile an annual report on disease and insect occurrence in the state.
