Alert Details

Low soybean aphid risks remain in the forecast for the next few days across portions of Minnesota, northern Iowa, the eastern Dakotas, northern and eastern lower Michigan, and into Ontario, Canada as latest maturing fields may still be at risk of seeing some soybean aphid pressure especially if the growth stage is prior to the R6 growth stage. Soybean aphids are beginning to migrate back to buckthorn, but some of the latest maturing/planted fields should still be scouted until the R5.5-R6 growth stage is reached especially if soybean aphids are present in those fields. The overall risk for this growing season, however, is now much less in many areas and the risk will be removed from the forecast later this week.
