    This Week On AgFax: Insect Watch List in Cotton, Peanuts, Rice And Soybeans – Audio

    AgFax.Com - Your Online Ag News Source

    By Owen Taylor, Editor

    Hello…

    This is Owen Taylor with AgFax Media…

    Here’s a quick rundown on topics and breaking news we’re covering this week in our electronic newsletters.

    • In the Midsouth, fall armyworms are hitting both rice and soybeans in Louisiana and Arkansas. This pressure started last week in Louisiana but now has spread as far north as central Arkansas. See comments by LSU’s Sebe Brown in our AgFax Southern Grain report and also from Arkansas’s Gus Lorenz in Southern Grain and also in our AgFax Rice report, both coming out on Thursday.
    • The white sugarcane aphid, which plagued grain sorghum last year in Texas and Louisiana, has now been confirmed in Mississippi’s south Delta near Greenville. Look for comments by Mississippi State’s Angus Catchot in our Southern Grain report.
    • Plant bug applications in cotton have started on a wider basis. Look for updates in both AgFax Southeast Cotton and AgFax Midsouth cotton, both available by Wednesday afternoon. Depending on the areas, spider mites and aphids are in the mix, too.
    • In south Georgia, kudzu bugs have started moving into soybeans on a more apparent basis. We’ll have comments from the University of Georgia’s Phillip Roberts in AgFax Southern Grain.
    • Tobacco budworms have been building in peanuts in the lower Southeast and some treatments have been made. See AgFax Peanuts on Friday for further details.

    As they’re released, all of these reports will be available on line at agfax.com.
