Alert Details

High and Moderate corn rootworm risks continue for the next week especially from a standpoint of needing to scout to see where corn rootworm beetles are present in order to potentially affect planting intentions for next year’s crop. While still scattered in nature, corn rootworm pressure has been higher this year and so it is important for growers to scout and see where beetle pressure is highest at this point in the growing season. Fields from eastern Colorado into Kansas, Nebraska, the Dakotas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, lower Michigan, and into southern Ontario, Canada may all be at risk.
