Alert Details

There is little to no risk for black cutworm migration over the next five days. Despite little to no risk, growers with newly-emerged corn not yet to the five leaf stage are encouraged to scout fields and look for signs of black cutworms, most notably with holes in corn leaves and/or plants broken off near the surface. Any treatment decisions should be made based on field-level damage thresholds.
