Alert Details

Corn rootworm hatch is likely to continue across much of the corn-growing region if it has not already begun. Fields from Colorado east into Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and southwest Ontario, Canada are all at risk in the next five days. Additionally, corn rootworm emergence is likely to continue or commence in fields along and south of I-80 from Nebraska east into Ohio through the rest of this week and into early next week. Growers all across the corn-growing region should monitor their fields for signs of rootworm and take appropriate action when and where needed.
