Alert Details

High and Moderate corn rootworm risks continue to envelop much of the corn-growing region from Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, the Dakotas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, lower Michigan, and into southern Ontario, Canada as rootworm beetles continue emergence and there has been some scattered reports of damage already as a result of corn rootworm pressure in some areas. Growers are encouraged to continue scouting fields and look for signs of corn rootworm populations as even if treatment is not needed at this time, these populations could indicate the need for different planting rotations and/or treatment next growing season.
