-- Voted "Best Mobile Agriculture App For 2012" by CropLife.com --
Speed scouting is a different way to determine if soybean aphids have reached the 250 aphids per plant threshold. It relies on the number of "infested" plants. Plants are considered "infested" if there are 40 or more aphids on that sample. No more having to try to count all the aphids on a plant to determine whether it has reached the threshold of 250 aphids per plant. This helps you quickly determine — yes or no — whether the plant has 40 aphids and would be considered “infested.” It then recommends further scouting or treatment options based on the number of “infested” plants in a given area.

Ratings and Reviews
Faster way to count, management depends on grower.
This App was recommended to use as a source while at college in 2016. Still use it to this day. I’d say it’s accurate enough to help make the decision to spray or not to spray. Just depends on the grower, agronomist, and what stage the soybeans are at. I believe the recommended threshold for South Dakota is 250 aphids/ plant and checking 20-30 plants. This App has you check 11 plants and you only count up to 40 aphids. Which yes, is a lot faster than counting 250 aphids/plant.

Ineffective! Waste of time to develop. Do not recommend use or taking time to download. Recommend tool be removed.
