Guess the Pest! Weeks 18 & 19

David Owens, Extension Entomologist,

Test your pest management knowledge by clicking on the GUESS THE PEST logo and submitting your best guess. For the 2019 season, we will have an “end of season” raffle for a $100.00 gift card. Each week, one lucky winner will also be selected for a prize and have their name entered not once but five times into the end of season raffle. A lucky winner will also receive a heavy duty sweep net.

Sorghum is a relatively minor field crop for us, and yield limiting disease incidences are less predictable than farther south, making GTP 18 a bit of a challenge. Folks can continue responding to GTP 18 this week or try your hand at the second challenge below.

GTP 18: What is causing the leaf discoloration on this sorghum?

GTP 19: This week, we have another timely critter for which sweep nets are an ideal scouting tool. What is this elusive insect?
