Best Management Practices to Protect Honey Bees and Other Pollinators in Soybean Fields
A new document has been published by Adam Dolezal of the Honey Bee Health Coalition Soybean BMP Technical Committee. It describes best management practices to protect honey bees and other pollinators in soybean fields (click here for the document). Most of the suggestions are very useful and applicable for NC soybean growers. However, note that the use of insecticidal seed treatments on soybean is not recommended in North Carolina since they have never been shown to improve yield in NCSU Extension replicated trials.
