Early Season Pests and Forest Tent Caterpillars

Howdy, We’ve been off to a chilly and windy start, and nearly everywhere needs rain, but most of our cotton is in the ground now, and soybeans are currently being planted. The corn and milo is looking a little dry, but good otherwise. I have been looking for sugarcane aphids a bit in some of the johnson grass on the edges of fields, but I have not picked any up yet in the spots I’ve looked. With the weather we’ve had lately, it’s also possible we could start… Read More →
