2024 Abstract - INSECT CONTROL IN MIDSOUTH SOYBEANS: Louisiana and Midsouth soybeans are affected by a diverse number of arthropod pests that compose different insect complexes. Presently, the most damaging complex of insects are stink bugs followed by pod feeding and defoliating worms. Differences exist among stink bug species’ ability to damage seed with Redbanded stink bugs being the most detrimental stink bug in Midsouth soybeans. Corn earworms and soybean loopers are the most difficult and costly lepidopteran insects to control. This presentation will highlight the use of a multifaceted approach to controlling yield limiting insects in Midsouth soybeans.
