ALERT: high black cutworm levels in Parkhill and Watford areas

Eric Richter, Syngenta Seeds has seen several fields in these area’s with what he has described as “… the highest levels I’ve seen in my career…”.  In these cases the hybrids with no genetic protection (i.e. that don’t have traits such as Agrisure Viptera 3111) are being completely wiped out.  Make sure you are checking your fields especially if you are in a typically high risk area (north of Lake Erie).  See blog article below for more cutworm details.

There are lots of different insects and issues out there this year so make sure you keep an eye on your fields.
