Weekly Update (May 9, 2019; Wk 05) Otani, Giffen, Weiss, Trudel, Turkington, Svendsen, Olfert, Vankosky


A busy week - seeding is underway across the prairies!  Our many field crop entomologists and their integral cooperators are busy deploying various insect monitoring equipment in fields too. 

This week marks the return of the Insect of the Week for the 2019 growing season!  The initial four weeks will feature invasive species of insects then we will transition to arthropod doppelgangers in an effort to support in-field scouting efforts with identification tips.

The Prairie Pest Monitoring Network is also excited to support the new Prairie Crop Disease Monitoring Network (PCDMN) by promoting their 2019 Cereal Rust Risk Report.  This is a new initiative and reports will be available to support in-field scouting.
