The YouTube video "Clima propício faz aumentar os ataques da mosca-branca nas lavouras de soja" (A propitious climate increases white fly attacks on soybean crops) discusses the current challenges of white fly infestations in soybean crops in Brazil. White fly, a sugaring pest that can carry the necrosis virus, has impacted major crops, including soybean, cotton, and sugarcane, causing both direct damage by consuming nutrients and indirect damage through disease transmission and sooty mold formation. This year's infestation is more prevalent than ever, likely due to climate conditions like low rainfall, low humidity, and high temperatures that enable white flies to lay more eggs and decrease their life cycle. Alongsidenotifyingsockresistance or tolerance towhiteflies as the primary defense, producers can use chemical and biological control methods such as piriproxifen, gefenuron, acetamiprid, and Bacillus thuringiensis, respectively. With significant portions of Brazil's agricultural system relying on soybean and corn rotations, heightened awareness and regionalized control tactics against whiteflies is crucial to minimize losses in various crops.
