Careful monitoring of insects in soybean fields and assessing how much threat they pose to crop yield could result in fewer insecticide applications and greater cost savings, says Angus Catchot, associate Extension professor of entomology and plant pathology at Mississippi State University. And, he notes, preliminary studies in Mississippi indicate that defoliation in early growth stages may not be as damaging to soybean yields as once thought, which could result in revision of thresholds for treatments.
