Data on the distribution of the soybean aphid, Aphis glycines, was obtained from the National Agricultural Pest Information System (NAPIS) and from Soybean Aphid Watch. This information was used in generating distribution maps, predictions for future spread, and relating past occurrences to environmental and physical characteristics. Results for the current year, and relationships to potential contributing factors are presented.
