Alert Details

Corn earworm risks do not return to the forecast until next week as northwest flow is likely to reestablish itself across much of the corn-growing region late this week into early next week. By next Monday, however, we are expected to see a more robust return of southerly winds especially across the Plains and into portions of the western corn-growing region. For this reason, we do have a Low corn earworm migration risk in the forecast mainly west of I-35 Monday night into Tuesday morning next week. The weather pattern does look to potentially become more active starting mid-week next week and continuing that way into the end of the month, so stay tuned as additional risks will be possible next week.
