Description

The spring of 1994 saw many early season insect problems on soybeans in Iowa and, indeed, across much of the Midwest. Although early season problems on soybeans are not uncommon, certainly the scale of problems we saw in 1994 was unusual. Undoubtedly, many of these problems followed from weather, in particular the heavy rains of 1993. In this paper, we will briefly review some of the reasons behind the events we saw in 1994 and focus on the potential for future problems and their management. In particular, with the possibility of many acres coming into production out of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), there is a potential for specific insect problems that should be recognized.
