Description: 

June is often a quiet month for insect pests but not this year as the Japanese beetle has emerged 2  to 3 weeks earlier then usual. So even though soybean aphids are uncommon right now, farmers may want to scout for this pest. We discuss what to look for and what the impact could be. To meet with Dr. Hodgson, consider joining her at the Crop Management Clinic (11-12 July) at FEEL. Visit this site for more information http://www.aep.iastate.edu/feel/cmc.html
