Got stink bugs in soybeans? Jim Heitholt, Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, wants to hear from you. “Stink bugs have shown up in Mid-South crops,” Heitholt says. “Just how serious are these pests from year-to-year?”

That's what a team of university researchers and Extension specialists are trying to find out and they need to hear from as many soybean producers as possible to build a database.

“You can help by responding to a survey written for the Southern soybean industry,” Heitholt says. “The survey takes only about 10 minutes. By participating, you will make a big difference in our collective fight against stinkbugs. Survey results will be made available to everyone late this summer.
