Insect pests still of concern in Manitoba
By Top Crop Manager
June 10, 2015 - Flea beetles in canola and cutworms continue to be the insects of greatest concern in Manitoba, according to the Manitoba Insect and Disease Update.
Insecticide applications and some reseeding have occurred because of feeding by these insects.
Producers are being encouraged to monitor emerging crops for seedling disease. So far, populations of disease vectors have been low. Aphid vectors of barley yellow dwarf have not been seen or reported, and only small populations of aster leafhopper have been reported so far; these should not be of concern in field crops.
