Soybean Aphids Very Low (07/25/19)

Soybeans are in the blooming (R1) crop stage or approaching R1. However, soybean aphids are absent from fields, perhaps due to numerous thunderstorms and winds, or entomopathogens keeping aphid populations low naturally.

Soybeans are in the blooming (R1) crop stage or approaching R1. However, soybean aphids are absent from fields, perhaps due to numerous thunderstorms and winds, or entomopathogens keeping aphid populations low naturally. The IPM Scouts found soybean aphid counts are still very low, about 0-9% of plants in field infested and an average of 0 to <1 aphid per plant in ND and MN. Continue to scout and stay tuned for more reports. Maps are posted weekly on the NDSU IPM website.
