Alert Details

Corn earworm migration is not predicted in the next five days. A persistent and locked-in northwest to southeast flow weather pattern is predicted to hold through at least next weekend, and should keep any migrating corn earworm moths to the south of the corn-growing region through that time. Growers are advised, however, that larvae are present in some fields as a result of earlier moth flights this summer so continued scouting is encouraged especially in fields where the crop stage is at a susceptible stage to damage.
