Survey-based soybean yield losses to insects are estimated annually in several southern US states. These estimates are collected through informal telephone or written survey queries to crop consultants and extension personnel who actively scout soybean fields and assist growers in making insect control decisions. Production losses are based on estimates of yield in the absence of insects.
