Sugarcane Aphid Confirmed in Hale County

The following was written by Dr. Pat Porter, District 2 Entomologist:

Greg Cronholm, Independent Crop Consultant and retired Extension IPM Agent, just called (7-24-17) to report finding sugarcane aphid in Hale County about 3 miles from Plainview. Most were small colonies but some were a bit bigger. Similar to what we saw with the early infestations  in Crosby County last week, he said his colonies were in the upper ½ of the plant.

For the southern High Plains we now have sugarcane aphid confirmed in Crosby, Lubbock, Hale and Floyd counties. 

Thanks Pat,

Blayne
