Image of SOYBEAN INSECT STUNG KERNELS
Soybeans or pieces of soybeans which show an indentation or discoloration on the seed coat. To determine the extent of damage, it is generally necessary to cross-section the soybean.
The top row contains confirmed stinkbug or insect stung soybeans. The third kernel from the left represents the minimum discoloration/damage requirement. The bottom row contains suspected stinkbug or insect stung soybeans.
Splits and pieces of soybeans may be cross-sectioned to determine damage. Cross-section soybean at the suspected area. If a kernel is otherwise damaged, it functions as other damage.

The visual reference images can be downloaded from our eBook Page. Information for purchasing printed copies of the visual references can be found on our Merchandise Page.
