(S5:E8) It's ON! Soybean aphid outbreaks in northern Iowa
Yes, Phil, they are spraying for aphids in Iowa. Erin and I discuss where in Iowa soybean aphid outbreaks are occurring and the factors that help explain some of the variation in aphid populations between fields. The occurrence of two other pests are noted. Finally, Matt was interviewed on Agribusiness Reports about his lab's work on efforts to conserve bees. For more info see:
(S5:E7) Aphids are breaking, bad.
We are getting close to the end of the season and soybean aphids have exceeded the threshold level in northern Iowa. Erin has come back from spraying research plots to share with us updates on timing, product choice and assessing the need for an insecticide during this aphid outbreak.
(S5:E6) Aphids on the rise, and rootworms, too!
Matt and Erin summarize the trend in soybean aphid populations for the midwest. They discuss other pest, include the corn rootworm and the reports of cornfields damaged by this pest. For more info on why this may happen in Bt-corn fields see http://bit.ly/16plxWm.
