Since time to scout fields is often limited, monitoring yield-threatening bugs and diseases online can help you know when you need to get out in your fields.
Here are some resources to keep in mind:
  • Pest Patrol provides text message alerts in southern states
  • includes soybean rust scouting, symptoms and control options
  • Aphid watch links to tracking maps, scouting and pest information
  • highlights issues and management options for glyphosate-resistant weeds
  • USDA APHIS offers maps and tracking for specific pests
