Abstract

Yogi Berra said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Many soybean producers will be at that fork in a couple of weeks, trying to decide whether or not to spray overwintered bean leaf beetles, and determining how to manage bean pod mottle virus. The dilemma is that some overwintered bean leaf beetles may transmit bean pod mottle virus and not knowing where in Iowa the problem is most likely to occur, what percentage of beetles are transmitting the virus, or when to spray can greatly complicate management decisions.
