Alert Details

As soybeans advance in their growth into the reproductive stage, soybean aphid concerns will be on the increase especially across the northern portion of the soybean-growing area from North and South Dakota east into northwest and central Minnesota as well as portions of central and northern Wisconsin in the week ahead. Growers with fields at or beyond the blooming stage should be scouting fields more intensely at this point and continue to do so for the next several weeks. We anticipate an increase in risk levels especially if average or below average temperatures remain in place for at least a few days especially north of the US 20 corridor.
