Wheat Midge Degree Days Update

The current degree day map indicates that most (50-90%) of wheat midge females are emerging this week.  Any wheat in the susceptible crop stages, heading through 50% flowering, should be scouted to confirm sub-threshold populations are present (read Wheat Midge Trapping article below). See last week article in the Crop & Pest Report #8 for more information about “WHEAT MIDGE DEGREE DAYS FOR SCOUTING.”
