Also, be sure to consider glyphosate-resistant volunteer corn when managing herbicide-resistant weeds. Bruce Potter, U of MN IPM specialist, discusses the status of soybean aphid populations, and the value of using the economic threshold. Other insects discussed include spider mites and corn rootworm.
