Alert Details

Low western bean cutworm development risks are predicted for some fields in southern Nebraska and northern Kansas by the end of the week and weekend. Accumulated heat units are predicted to approach initial development thresholds by that time in the Low risk area. Additionally, a few moths may also start to appear at scattered locations in the Great Lakes region and southwest Canada. Crops in the latter area, however, are not at a stage where damage could occur so no risk is being issued at this time.
