Integrated Pest Management

Pests can interfere with crop productivity and unnecessary pest management costs can erode profits. While pests can colonize every acre of soybeans in Pa., they do not invade every field annually. This publication provides details of an IPM program that can effectively control weeds, diseases, and pests typical of Pa. soybean fields, while minimizing input costs.
