Week of August 18 – 22 Scouting Summary Report

AGRONOMIC CROPS:

  • Corn: Scouted fields ranged from the R1 to R4 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.   White mold noted in some fields and also some downy mildew.
  • Alfalfa: Some fields were cut for 3rd harvest, others are growing back from 3rd harvest.  Potato leaf hopper numbers remain low.  Scouts also found low numbers of Japanese beetles and aphids.
