Alert Details

Heat unit accumulations will continue to increase especially across the southwestern portion of the corn-growing region through early next week. As a result, the risk of western bean cutworm development and emergence will increase as 25% emergence threshold values are approached. Low western bean cutworm risks are in place from north central Kansas east southeast into western Missouri by early next week. Elsewhere, expect a few scattered moths to appear mainly in low numbers especially across the western and central corn-growing region.
