Cultural variables in agricultural production influence soybean insect populations and associated crop damage. Thus, the oldest of protection methods - cultural operations - should be considered in developing integrated insect pest management programs. These cultural operations impact on the biological and ecological relationships between insects and crop and noncrop vegetation. Particular emphasis in recent years has been given to more modern approaches to pest management utilizing cultural variables in crop production systems. These include date-of-planting, variety selection, row spacing, tillage, trap crops, double-cropping, and irrigation. The influences of these cultural variables can be observed by examining the impact of soil type and soil management, vegetational diversity, and insecticide interactions on pests and beneficial arthropods in various soybean cropping systems
