  • Southern Rust Update in Nebraska. This week southern rust was confirmed in Nemaha, Pawnee, and Richardson counties in southeast Nebraska and in Clay County in south central Nebraska; last week it was confirmed in Otoe County.
  • Dig Corn Roots to Evaluate Rootworm Management. Larval feeding should just be ending, making this a good time to assess your management program. Waiting too long may allow regrowth and require closer scrutiny of roots.
