  2. Western Bean Cutworm

    Western bean cutworm (WBC) numbers continue to decrease over the past week, with a total average of 0.86 moths across the state. This decline suggests we are past peak WBC season as no counties reported being above threshold (an average of 7 or more moths for the week) recommended for scouting (Figure 1). With this decrease, many counties will be replacing WBC monitoring with FAW as more counties set up FAW traps this week.

  3. Early fall is one of the best times to topdress maintenance fertilizer on perennial forages. Soils are usually firm in September, and autumn topdressing provides needed nutrients for good winter survival of the forage stand and vigorous regrowth the following spring. Now is a great time to begin preparations and acquiring fertilizer supplies so timely fall applications can be made.

  4. Crawford Soil and Water Conservation District, in conjunction with Crawford-OSU Extension, will be hosting a Manure Nutrient Management Field Day on August 30.

Jenifer Yost, a Research Soil Scientist with USDA-ARS from Temple, Texas will be speaking about soil health and the benefits of swine and dairy manure. Dr.
