Alert Details

Growers in northeast Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio should continue to be on the lookout for corn rootworm hatch in the next five days. Additionally, some fields in southwest Michigan may also see some corn rootworm hatches begin in the next week. Multiple confirmation reports from Kansas into Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana have recently been reported which indicates this insect is becoming active across an increasingly larger portion of the corn-growing region. Farmers should scout their fields and take appropriate action when and where needed to protect against this insect.
