Since its introduction to Iowa in 2000, the soybean aphid has firmly established itself as a pest of soybean. In 2003, the largest infestations of this pest occurred in Iowa. Current research is examining accurate sampling methods, refining economic thresholds, and providing farmers with effective management options. In addition, research has been conducted to determine the economic impact of this insect pest, especially during an outbreak year.
