Week of August 11 – 15 Scouting Summary Report


  • Corn: Scouted fields ranged from VT to R3 milk stage.  As corn enters brown silk, scouting comes to an end on these fields.
  • Soybeans: Many soybeans in the R1 to R4 stage of development.  Japanese beetle and grasshopper feeding damage were found at low levels in most fields.   Stink bugs are being caught in sweep net samples.  Most field still below threshold, but a few fields noted at just below or right at threshold levels.   A few fields with while mold were found this week.
  • Alfalfa: Some fields were cut for 3rd harvest, others are growing back from 3rd harvest.  Potato leaf hopper numbers remain low.
