Alert Details

The annual western bean cutworm flight is in its final stages for the 2018 growing season. Only Low risks remain across northeast lower Michigan into southern Ontario and far southwest Quebec, Canada, with late-planted corn and dry bean fields at any risk at this point based on flight and crop stages. Growers with crops still at susceptible stages to damage and/or where moth captures and egg laying may still be occurring should continue monitoring fields, but we anticipate the overall risk will be removed from the forecast next week based on recent field reports and crop stage by that point.
