Alert Details

Overall, northwest flow looks to dominate the weather across much of the corn-growing region through the next week or so. A fairly potent system caught up in the overall flow, however, may result in a brief opportunity for corn earworm migration on some south to southwest winds early next week. With fresh market and produce crops entering or already in critical growth stages and an increasing percentage of silking field corn also expected in the coming week or so, any migration risks will be more aggressive. Low risks are predicted generally along/east of I-35 into the I-75 corridor next Monday into Tuesday ahead of the cold front. Growers with crops at susceptible stages to damage are encouraged to monitor traps closely in the coming weeks.
