Soybeans are beginning to bloom especially between I-80 and I-90 from Nebraska east into Indiana and Ohio. At the present time, soybean aphid populations (where present at all) are very low to low across this region. Given crop stage, a Low soybean aphid risk is now in place from northeast Nebraska and far southeast South Dakota east into southern Minnesota, northern Iowa, northern Illinois, far southern Wisconsin, northern Indiana, northwest Ohio, and far southern Michigan to raise an awareness to growers that soybeans are now entering their critical growth stages where soybean aphids can begin to cause damage if numbers increase to near or above economic threshold. Such populations have not been seen in the Midwest as of yet, so this risk is to simply alert growers that soybeans are beginning to enter their soybean aphid treatment window especially south of I-90 and where fields are more advanced in growth and blooming, regular scouting should begin now if not already. Favorable weather is predicted for regeneration the rest of this week and also into next week as well with moderate temperatures and most beating rains further south so populations may increase where they are currently present.
