Wheat Insects Update
David Buntin, professor of entomology at the UGA-Griffin Campus, sent me an email a while back and I thought I would share.
“With the extended warm weather folks should also be checking for aphid (dueto BYD transmission). If aphids are present or if farmers are going toapply a herbicide to wheat they may consider adding a lambda cyhalothrin insecticide (like Karate Z) or gamma cyhalothrin (Declare) to the tank mix. Other insecticides may reduce the aphids but the cyhalothrin products do abetter job of also suppressing BYD.”
