Summary: This presentation will help consultants, growers, and other practitioners in the upper Midwest region assess the relative value of seed treatments for the management of the key pest of soybeans, the soybean aphid. This includes information on the duration of crop protection that can be expected from seed treatments, possible effects on a key non-target predator of aphids, and data from a multi-state effort to quantify yield. Seed treatments are compared with the IPM approach of monitoring and treating when the action threshold of 250 aphids/plant is reached, in terms of relative benefit to producers.
