Alert Details

Little to no corn earworm migration risk is predicted in the next five days with northwest flow expected to dominate the corn-growing region weather pattern. We still recommend that processing and fresh market growers, especially in the central and northern corn-growing region, continue to monitor traps and scout fields as these fields may see some local corn earworm pressure given their favorable host status compared to larger-production field corn that is now largely past critical growth stages and a suitable host.
