We discuss what growers should consider when applying insecticide to soybeans when seeds are developing. We summarize a recent Integrated Crop Management newsletter articles on late season management of soybean aphids.

Drs. Matt O’Neal and Erin Hodgson created a podcast to promote IPM concepts, like identification, sampling, economic thresholds, and insecticide efficacy. They also talk about updates on invasive pests and regulatory news, and translate new research relative to insects in agriculture.
