Field Crop Insects is a publication that is a cooperative effort between the Iowa Soybean Association and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. The publication contains descriptions and images of many pest insects as well as information on insect life cycle, damage, scouting and management options. Correct recognition and identification of insect pests is an important first step to making a proper management decision regarding any insect species found in soybean and corn.

1) What is this evaluation about?
The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the impact of Iowa State University Integrated Pest Management (ISU IPM) programs, activities, and goals. Your voice is critical to this effort. Regardless of how you answer the questions, your responses will help us to critically examine the contributions our program can make to improving pest management, plant health and productivity for all Iowans.
2) Who is doing this evaluation?
What is the Iowa Pest Resistance Management Program?
This website provides Integrated Pest Management (IPM) information from Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach, the ISU College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and its many departments and programs. The ISU Integrated Pest Management program represents research and extension faculty and staff from the Departments of:

The Iowa Pest Resistance Management Program (IPRMP) is an Iowa-specific effort to address pests--including weeds, insects and diseases--that can adapt and become resistant to chemical, genetic, and agronomic control practices. The IPRMP outlines approaches for effective, integrated management solutions that will sustainably control pests. By fostering methods to detect resistance, resistance can be delayed or even prevented, limiting the spread of pest resistance.
Upon reviewing the data collected in the study, researchers concluded that corn growers struggle with “balancing the conflicting roles of environmental stewardship and successful businessperson. In reality, short-term profit-making trumps the environmental stewardship role.”
