Soybean Pests

Posted by romeethredge on August 30, 2013


Loopers and other foliage feeders have been a pest in some fields. Also, kudzu bugs have been a problem and some older fields may have to have a second spray for them.

What bothers me is the increase in stinkbugs in some fields. This field I was in this week had some stink bug egg masses. The dark ones are about to hatch and the creamy ones need a few more days. The grower will have to watch this field closely next week to determine if a stink bug spray is needed.
