caterpillar pests of soybean

A survey of field crop entomologists in soybean-growing states indicated five species of highest concern: green cloverworm (Hypena scabra), soybean looper (Chrysodeixis includens), corn earworm (Helicoverpa zea), velvetbean caterpillar (Anticarsia gemmatalis), and painted lady (Vanessa cardui, also known as thistle caterpillar in its larval form). Shown here are maps indicating where each pest has appeared and how growers rate its persistence. (Image originally published in Huseth et al 2021, Journal of Integrated Pest Management)
