Pest Update

Aphids of all species remain in very low numbers on the sorghum this week, keeping to the lowest leaves. One larger colony of SCA was found, but SCA and Yellow SCA (top picture) remain well under thresholds and aren't causing any damage.
Thrips and aphids have been doing some damage to seedling cotton, which may be struggling due to the high soil moisture and therefore more susceptible to feeding damage by these pests.Some cotton may need to be sprayed and all of it needs to be scouted. After a spray, it is very important to continue scouting to make sure the treatment was effective.
