Cutworm damage results in reseeding in MB
By Top Crop Manager
June 9, 2016 - Cutworms are getting larger and have been an issue in some fields in Manitoba. According to the Manitoba Insect and Disease Update, the highest level of damage appears to be in the northwest, where there has been some reseeding because of cutworm feeding.
Meanwhile, flea beetle feeding continues, although foliar use of insecticides for flea beetle management has not been widespread. In many fields plants are now getting to stages more tolerant to feeding by flea beetles.
