Soil temperature heat unit accumulations and less severe recent rainfall events in this region may favor some hatching prospects on a scattered basis. Additionally, Low initial hatch risks are also found in southwest/south central Kansas throughout the next week. Growers located in or near the risk areas should scout fields and look for signs of new hatches going forward.
