Green cloverworm adults are quite numerous and are laying eggs in alfalfa and soybeans. So, there are, or will soon be, small larvae present. Feeding by green cloverworms will probably not impact alfalfa or most soybean fields unless there are significant larval populations in really late planted fields.
Stink bug populations seem to be increasing in north central Kansas but most beans should be far enough along in their development that stink bugs should be of little concern.
