- (Crop Science Society of America) Sayonara, Kudzu Bug?
- Adam Bray, graduate student in the Topp Lab at the Danforth Center has spent a lot of time with kudzu bugs. He is researching the bug’s destruction of soybeans and how to protect the crop.
- (Crop Science Society of America) Sayonara, Kudzu Bug?, The kudzu bug originated in east Asia and India and showed up in Georgia, Bray’s home state, in 2009. And like its viney plant namesake, the kudzu bug has earned a negative reputation. Kudzu bug on soyKudzu bugs pierce the stems of soybean plants. In 2004, farmers applied 771 metric tons of insecticides on soybean plants to keep the pests under control. Photo credit Adam Bray.“Everybody in Georgia knows about the kudzu bug,” Bray says
