Sweet Corn Pheromone Trap Network for Western New York, 2001

This is a seasonal scouting report giving growers in the Western New York area information on the presence of sweet corn pests and recommendations on scouting and thresholds. The report is written by Abby Seaman, NYS IPM's Area Extension Educator for Vegetables.

For 6.5.01

ECB catches remain low because of the cool weather. We can expect an increase in trap catches when (if) the weather warms up. Still no reports of egg masses from the field, even in the most advanced corn. There were again a few CEW moths caught in Eden. Corn started under plastic still looks like it's a couple of weeks from tassel emergence, when fields should be first scouted for ECB. Scouting instructions next week.

The numbers below are the weekly total for each location.
