Iowa State University and the Iowa Soybean Association recently released a collaborative publication, the Soybean Field Guide, CSI 0010, which is a revision and update of the popular Soybean Disease and Pest Management Field Guide.
The pocket-sized guide is a durable and weather-resistant publication and has been expanded from 52 to 68 pages. It now features five sections on production, integrated pest management (IPM), diseases, insects and disorders. It includes several additional insects that impact soybean production, as well as disorders like hail damage and nutrient problems.
Soybean diseases and insects are the farmers’ number one concern in profitable soybean production. This field guide has been designed to enable farmers’ easy identification of problem yield robbers, as well as providing valuable production information. Funding for printing and distribution of the guide was provided by the Iowa soybean checkoff and ISU Extension.
Printed copies of the Soybean Field Guide can be ordered from the ISU Extension Online Store at or by calling 515-294-5247; or by contacting the Iowa Soybean Association at 800-383-1423. The guide can also be viewed online at www.iasoybeans.com/productionresearch/.
