Podisus nigrispinus (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) and IAC-24 Soybean Cultivar Are Compatible

The main tactics of soybean integrated pest management combine plant resistance and biological control. The impact of insect resistant IAC-24 soybean cultivar [caterpillars of Anticarsia gemmatalis Hübner (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in UFVS-2006 soybean cultivar susceptible to insects and water compared to A. gemmatalis in IAC-24 soybean cultivar resistant to insects and water] on the nymphal and adult stages of the predator Podisus nigrispinus Dallas (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) was evaluated. The duration and survival of the instars and nymphal stage and the body mass of nymphs, males and females of this predator were similar between treatments. The periods of pre-oviposition, oviposition, post-oviposition and egg incubation; interval between egg clutch; number of egg clutch per female, eggs per egg clutch, eggs per female, nymphs per female, nymphs per egg clutch and percentage of nymph eclosion and male and female longevity were also similar between treatments. The use of insect resistant IAC-24 soybean cultivar on P. nigrispinus was found to be safe because that legume did not have any deleterious effects on the referred predator.
