The invasive brown marmorated stink bug (Halyomorpha halys) “will eat almost anything” and “attacks more than 170 different plant species,” according to StopBMSB.org. Among those targets is soybean, the number-two crop in the United States. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service are working to identify soybean breeds that exhibit resistance to the pest.
