Abstract
In the last two weeks, I've heard reports of cutworm damage in soybean. Rich Pope visited a commercial soybean field in Harrison County and identified a mixture of black cutworm and dingy cutworm (Fig. 1). Matt O'Neal, ISU soybean entomologist, confirmed cutworm damage in soybean research plots at Curtiss Farm just south of Ames in Story County. The small cage plots were also infested with a combination of cutworm species (Fig. 2). It can be difficult to distinguish cutworm species without a hand lens, but a previous ICM article can help with identification.
