Alert Details

A low corn earworm migration risk is predicted primarily across portions of Kansas and southern Nebraska for Saturday night into early Sunday morning and then from central Kansas and southeast Nebraska eastward into southwest Iowa and western Missouri for Sunday night into Monday morning. A rather strong southerly wind regime is expected to develop across this region by this time with winds originating in northern Texas and Oklahoma. While few, if any, crops are at a susceptible stage to damage, any other hosts that are present in the Low risk areas may provide residence for isolated to scattered newly migrated corn earworm moths by early next week.
