There has been quite a few corn ear worms feeding on ear tips in our CRVP fields, and we have gotten questions this past week. Research has not shown significant yield loss from this tip feeding. With the heat, fields are maturing rapidly. Some of the corn verification fields will have irrigation terminated very soon.
The sugar cane aphids have moved into our Arkansas County GSRVP field but still light pressure. Sorghum head worms are starting to build as well. The Cross County field in Cherry Valley has not had much insect pressure so far.
