Alert Details

Little to no risk of black cutworm migration is predicted in the next five days. Growers with corn crops between newly emerged and the V5 growth stage, however, should continue scouting efforts until the crop has advanced past this growth stage. Numerous moth flights occurred earlier this growing season, and given late planting in many areas, there may still be some fields at risk of black cutworm damage even though we are in the month of July.
