T#ar-xzLZ / Extension report Doug Holen Regional Extension Educator Ag Production Systems-Crops West Ottertail County Fergus Falls, MN 56537 218/739-7130 Season Offers Learning Opportunities with Soybean Aphids With the 2002 growing season coming to an end, it's always interesting to reflect on the climate and production factors contributing to yield for the year. Most areas in the district .... experienced delayed planting due to the extended cold and wet spring and later went through extended periods of dry and heat followed by wet. The last obstacle was the removal of crops during a challenging harvest time with uncooperative weather and slow crop maturation. Scouting throughout the season revealed several pest problems including alfalfa weevil, European corn borer, and grasshoppers, white mold, root rot, and leaf diseases, pigweeds, kochia, and Canada thistle. Research efforts focused on soybean aphids (SBA) as the Fergus Falls region realized economic thresholds midway through the season. The outbreak offered the unique opportunity to concentrate research efforts on a new pest in our backyard. The first thing we learned is the SBA's ability to over-winter in WC MN. This is the first aphid species known to successfully do this. With buckthorn patches identifd as the over-wintering site, plenty of host plants populate the district. Scouting can be done efficiently with this knowledge by beginning at field margins closest to the nearest wooded area or wind obstruction such as buildings which tend to encourage landing of SBAs in flight. Areas with significant SBA populations tended to Big Stone Count'," Environmental Services 20 Second St. SE Ortonville, MN 56275 Coutlt) CotlIlhouse 8:00 a.m - 4:30 pm.

Another piece of information that was observed was the SBA's ability to reach large populations (500- 4000/plant) and sustain for 30 to 40 days. Colonies on the plants varied. Beginning locations were primarily on the top trifoliate leaves to later in the season located throughout, including leaves (up and down plant), stems, and/or pods. University of Minnesota research plots were initiated and monitored throughout the season west and east of Fergus Falls at producer sites identified with heavy SBA infestations. SBA counts were collected prior to insecticide application and populations monitored post treatment. Data collected included insecticide evaluations for immediate and residual control, application methods, and yield and quality consequences to soybean plants. Significant differences were identified with yield in comparing treatments, seeds/lb., and oil content at both sites. Specific insecticides provided better initial and recovery control when compared to each other and the untreated checks. Air and ground application methods were found to be equally effective but could differ depending on the choice of insecticide. Both sites resulted in approximately ten bushel yield decreases in the non treated plots. Much of the yield loss can be accounted for by reduced seed size. Test weight differences did not exist. Additional testing will be done in 2003 to evaluate application timing to quantify SBA number and plant stage interactions as well as variety susceptibility differences. Complete data sets for this year's information will be published in the On Farm Cropping Trials books and can be requested at any time.
