Soybean Update

Growers need to check their fields for insects NOW. Three cornered alfalfa hoppers are really out in force along with the kudzu bug. See picture below of damage by three cornered alfalfa hopper and roots forming at damage site. Often the stem will just break with wind or just walking through the field.

Here are some very good sites for information on kudzu bugs:

Late Planting – There are several group 5, 6, 7, and 8 group beans that have yielded very well planted late.

As always follow label directions and wash all empties completely.

Good Growing!

*Some information obtained from 2013 Georgia Pest Control Handbook,                       Soybean Diagnostic Guide, and Dupont.

**As always follow label and dispose of empties properly.
