Manitoba Agriculture has posted its weekly insect and disease update for June 25. The full report is available here.
• Flea beetle numbers are starting to decline, and cutworms are advancing into their final larval stages or starting to turn to pupae.
• Grasshopper hatch continues, check field edges and other suitable egg-laying areas to determine levels.
• Counts of adult diamondback moth high in some traps in the Eastern part of Manitoba; still no reports of larvae.
• Traps for diamondback moth can be removed after counts done this week; scouting should then focus on looking for larvae.
• Fusarium risk maps are now on MAFRI website.
The report, as well as MAFRI’s crop, crop production and weather reports are also available through Crop Chatter, where producers and agronomists can also post questions about crop development or pest and idease issues.
