Alert Details

Initial scattered corn rootworm hatch risks are now in the forecast mainly from southeastern Kansas east into Missouri, central/southern Illinois, central Indiana, and western/central Ohio. Heat unit thresholds have either been met or exceeded in these areas and generally, soil conditions are favorable at least on a scattered basis for hatches to occur. Growers should be aware that hatches are likely to be scattered in nature at least initially especially given recent heavy rainfall in many portions of the risk area. Scouting efforts should commence soon, if not already, in and near the risk area.
