Brief Project Summary:

The focus of this research is to show how redbanded stink bugs affect soybeans in Mississippi and the measures needed to manage this pest. The project determines in-field damage potential of redbanded stink bugs in MS producer fields (large plot), determines influence of insecticide termination timings on yield and seed quality, determines insecticidal efficacy of insecticides to control redbanded stink bugs in Mississippi and compares insecticide tolerances of redbanded stink bug to southern green stink bugs.

Key Benefactors:
farmers, agronomists, extension agents

Information And Results
Final Project Results

Many products provide some level of control of RBSB in soybean; however, mixtures provided the most consistent control, with the tank mix of acephate and bifenthrin working the best.

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
