Alert Details

Soybean aphid egg hatch risks are in the forecast for the next week especially across northeast Nebraska, southeast South Dakota, portions of northwest and central Iowa, and far northern Illinois. While there is no threat to crops at this time, the egg hatch risk does signify that soybean aphids are beginning to emerge this growing season and population dynamics should begin to be monitored in the coming weeks especially if you are located in or near the risk area. Some northward expansion of the risk is in the forecast for later this week, especially across portions of southwest Minnesota and northwest Iowa, but predicted weather conditions may limit additional egg hatches until next weekend or next week.
