Alert Details

Corn rootworm risks remain in the High and Moderate categories for the next week, but overall the risks to the crop for this year are dwindling as it becomes more advanced in growth. Growers all across the corn-growing region, from eastern Colorado all the way east into Ohio, lower Michigan, and southern Ontario, Canada as well as all the way south in Kansas, and Missouri north into the Dakotas, Minnesota, and Wisconsin should continue to scout and note where beetle populations are present as this may affect planting intentions for next year. High risks mainly focus along/north of I-80 at this point simply based on crop stage, with further lessening of the elevated risks anticipated in the next few weeks.
