Dr. Allen is currently doing research on the biology, ecology and insecticide susceptibilities of the corn earworm and various stink bug species on soybean. The economic injury level of the corn earworm is being evaluated at various reproductive growth stages and between different maturity groups of soybean.The goal of this research is to understand the influence of the landscape on insecticide susceptibilities of insect pests and to develop dynamic insect economic thresholds dependent upon soybean growth stage.
