Soybean insect pest management

Soybean or soya bean is a species of legume (Glycine max) native to eastern Asia. It is classified as an oilseed rather than a pulse due to its high oil content and its more popular use as a source of vegetable oil and industrial applications such as biodiesel. It was free of pests and diseases. However, its continuous cultivation with a simultaneous increase in the area had led to disease, insect and weed incidence.
