Scouting Report - April 15, 2019
Alfalfa – Alfalfa is enjoying the warm days and moist conditions, growing rapidly. Finding low levels of alfalfa weevil and pea aphids throughout the area. Alfalfa Weevil Larvae numbers range from 0-4 per stem within our area. None at treatment levels yet, but continue to monitor closely. Consider applying a fungicide when applying your insecticide.
 
Wheat – Wheat is also really taking off growing.  Due to unfavorable conditions last fall, wheat growth stages range widely from Early Tiller up to Early Jointing. Starting to find the main stem of larger wheat at Joint Stage. At Jointing, the developing head is above ground, meaning it is susceptible to freeze injury. Cattle should be removed at or before jointing and many herbicides should also have been applied before this stage. Some Pea Aphids being reported in sandier areas as well.
 
Corn – A few producers have started planting corn, many more planning on starting in the next week to 10 days.
 
Moisture throughout the area is mostly adequate to saturated, however some sandy fields are starting to dry out in the top 0-6 inches.
