In the most recent Tilmon Lab video, Dr. Kelley Tilmon goes over how to rate soybean defoliation in the field and what to look for before making management decisions. Soybean defoliation is caused by a number of insects including a variety of caterpillars species, Japanese beetles, bean leaf beetles and grasshoppers. Defoliation ratings vary based on the crop stage the soybean is in. For more information, check out our video below.

Soybean gall midge scouting card
The soybean gall midge is a new pest of soybean in the midwestern region first reported in Nebraska. Since its discovery, it has been confirmed in four additional states (South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri) and its distribution is expanding. It has not yet been reported in Ohio, but it is important to be able to recognize soybean injury associated with the soybean gall midge and understand how to scout for this new pest.
