Alert Details

Corn earworm risks return to the forecast initially across portions of Kansas, Nebraska, and southern South Dakota tomorrow night into Saturday morning as low pressure begins to organize in the Plains states. Winds overall should be light, so only Low risks are predicted at this time especially given the source region for these winds. As the weekend progresses, Low risks continue to expand to the north and east in response to high pressure moving to the southeast and low pressure developing in the northern Plains and southern Canada. Low risks are found as far east as I-57 and Lake Michigan by late in the weekend and early next week. Despite the lower risks, growers should remain vigilant and scout their fields as well as monitor traps given recent flights into the corn-growing region, and the possibility of isolated flights this next weekend.
