Managing Pests in Dry Bean

Dry beans have a number of significant pest management issues that require control measures to manage various fungal and insect pests. The ones studies within this project include anthracnose, halo blight, common bacterial blight, white mold, root rot, western bean cutworm, potato leafhopper and soybean cyst nematode.

The research conducted within this project will evaluate new chemical and biological pest control products for important dry bean disease and insect pests; determine the economic feasibility of new control products for dry bean growers; integrate new control products into an overall management strategy for each pest; generate knowledge that can be used to develop best practices for growers.
