Some soybean pests are thriving in wet conditions.

Justine Terwillegar with Syngenta Crop Protection says one example is Japanese beetle.

“We often see more issues when it’s wet in the spring, and then maybe we transition into more of like a hot, dry summer. So obviously we don’t know what the weather is going to be, but certainly wet conditions earlier on can be more conducive for development.”

She tells Brownfield growers looking to treat need to get the timing right.
