Grasshopper Update (07/30/20)

Be vigilant on scouting for grasshoppers.

Be vigilant on scouting for grasshoppers. Adult grasshopper are becoming more common and can do more damage quickly to maturing field crops. As small grains are harvested, grasshoppers will start moving around more to find ‘greener’ field crops to feed in. The IPM Scouts detected increasing numbers in central and south central areas of North Dakota last week (see IPM map).
