Aphid Resistance in Organic Soybean Production

Published Feb 10, 2010


Soybean aphids can negatively impact yields for farmers in conventional and organic farming systems. New soybean varieties have become available that might resist aphids. In this one-year trial, the non-resistant soybean variety yielded more compared to the resistant variety. However, fewer aphids were observed on the resistant variety. Future research is needed to test new soybean varieties under aphid pressure.
