Alert Details

Low soybean aphid risks are in the forecast across the northern soybean-growing areas for the next week and beyond, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, northern Iowa, far northeast Nebraska, eastern South Dakota, and southeastern North Dakota. With soybeans now entering the early reproductive stages of growth, it will be important for regular scouting to occur in these fields especially with near to slightly below average temperatures and less rainfall over the next week. Soybean aphid populations can grow rather quickly especially provided suitable hosts and favorable weather.
