Alert Details

Soybean aphid populations may increase in some fields across the upper Midwest region this week as favorable weather conditions are anticipated. Near to even slightly below average temperatures are predicted for much of the week across this region, so growers are advised to monitor fields regularly and be prepared to take any necessary action based on what is being observed in your field/fields and not necessarily what the local report may state. Fields from far eastern South Dakota, southeast North Dakota, central and southern Minnesota, far northern Iowa, and into Wisconsin are included in the Moderate risk this week and into next weekend. Low risks extend from the eastern Dakotas southeast into Minnesota, northern Iowa, far northern Illinois, Wisconsin, lower Michigan, and into southern Ontario, Canada.
