This resource will assist growers and agronomists with soybean crop scouting throughout the summer. The calendar outlines growth stages as well as soybean insects and diseases that should be monitored in soybean fields throughout the growing season.
This calender was made specifically for Manitoba. You may read or hear about other insects and diseases from other soybean growing regions, such as North Dakota or Ontario, but these are not all present in Manitoba (i.e. soybean cyst nematode and soybean rust), yet! This is expected to change as we grow soybeans more frequently in rotation. Keep in mind that Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers has eyes and ears out in the field throughout the growing season to monitor crop conditions and we also fund research on an annual research that surveys for specific pests, such as Soybean Cyst Nematode.
The potential impact of each pest on soybean production and quality is ranked (high, medium, low) based on the opinions of experts and observations made over the past several years of soybean production. Download Soybean Insect and Disease Scouting Calender
