Alert Details

There is little to no risk for black cutworm migration in the next five days. We will continue to monitor a weather system late week and into the weekend, but it appears the main focus of this system will be further south and mainly out of the corn-growing region with regards to any potential migration risk. Growers should continue to monitor traps, scout fields where corn has emerged, and also continue heat unit calculations based on previous flights to determine when larvae may appear in local fields.
