Alert Details

Western bean cutworms may continue to pose an isolated threat to corn and dry bean crops especially from southern Ontario northeast into southwest Quebec, Canada into next week. The peak flight has subsided across all of the corn-growing region, but some lingering moth counts and late planted fields may coincide to produce an isolated risk to some fields even as we move into the middle portion of September. Growers in these areas should continue to monitor their fields and take appropriate action, if needed. The threat should subside by mid-month.
