Dr. Robert Koch, U of M Soybean Extension Entomologist, and Bruce Potter, U of M Extension IPM Specialist discuss soybean and corn insects to keep an eye out for as we move into August. Soybean aphid populations have overall been low this year, but there are pockets of increasing population. Scouting is vital to determine where issues may be or if treatments aren’t needed. Other insects discussed include soybean gall midge, spider mites, and corn rootworm.
We want to thank our sponsors the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council, along with the Minnesota Corn Research and Promotion Council.
