Got bugs? There’s an app for that.

The University of Tennessee recently launched a Web-based field guide to aid in identifying soybean insect pests.

The website performs like a smartphone app wherever you have cellular service and provides general information about common insect pests, according to a news release. In addition, it includes sampling techniques, insecticide treatment thresholds, photos and management recommendations — including insecticide selection.

The new soybean site is complementary to the cotton insect field guide and disease guides for soybean, cotton and wheat developed by Dr. Heather Kelly.

You can access the UT Disease and Insect Field Guides at http://guide.utcrops.com/ or from the top menu of the UTcrops News Blog.

The soybean insect guide can be accessed directly by clicking here.

TIP: Save the UTcrops News Blog website to the home screen of your Android, iPhone or iPad to have app-like access to content, including the news feed, field guides, UTcrops.com and other content.
