Alert Details

Soybean aphid risks have been reduced to the Low category as many plants are now at or beyond the critical R5.5 or R6 growth stage where soybean aphid damage or impact to yields is pretty minimal in many areas now. Still, late or re-planted fields from North Dakota into eastern South Dakota, far northeast Nebraska, northern Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin should continue scouting efforts until specific fields reach or exceed the R6 growth stage as some late-season population increases will remain possible.
