Soybean leaves crinkling, cupping and turning yellow last year
led to the discovery of a new pest the soybean aphid. The aphid
is very small (2 to 4 mm) and pale green aphid. It pierces the
leaves and sucks fluids from soybean leaves and stems, causing
injury. Many questions still exist regarding the type of damage
this insect can do, how to set economic thresholds and what control
measures are effective. The following references can help you
get the most current information and research about this new pest.
