Aphids are still hard to find, but that doesn't mean that Matt and Erin can't find something to talk about. We discuss spraying insecticides based on a calendar date as opposed to spraying insecticide based on need (i.e. aphids populations above a threshold).

Future of chlorpyrifos

Show: 
Soybean Pest Podcast
Season:

Episode: 
25
Description: 

Today, Matt and Erin talk about the recent EPA proposal to revoke all tolerances to chlorpyrifos. This insecticide is an option in corn and soybean in Iowa and restricting or removing the use could have potential implications for field crop pest management. Matt shares a paper that shows a decrease of chlorpyrifos in corn but relatively steady use in soybean (doi:10.1088/1748-9326/10/9/094016). He isn't sure if revoking the use would have an immediate impact, but Erin offers a Coke analogy to say otherwise.
