Alert Details

Low black cutworm migration risks are predicted from eastern Texas and Louisiana northeast as far as southeast Kansas, southern Missouri, extreme southern Illinois, and western Kentucky tomorrow night into Wednesday morning. A rather deep low pressure system is expected to develop across the Dakotas by tomorrow, and with high pressure in the eastern United States, a decent southwest wind fetch should set up from the southern United States northeast into the western Ohio River valley. A few moths may migrate into the Low risk area by Wednesday morning. Growers across eastern Texas should continue to monitor for signs of black cutworms in earliest emerging fields over the next week or so. Otherwise, north to northwest flow is predicted to dominate so no additional risks are in the forecast at this time.
