Field Crops

NOTE: The following project and its outcomes are not connected to the SCRI grant supporting this website, which focuses primarily on BMSB research in specialty crops. We provide the following links to information on BMSB in field crops because they may be of interest to some growers.

Brown marmorated stink bug is known to feed on some field crops, such as soybean and cotton. For more information on BMSB in field crops, consult Ames Herbert (Virginia Tech), who led a USDA-funded project surveying BMSB in soybean.
