Cabbage
Watch for imported cabbage worm (ICW) and diamondback moths (DBM) moths laying eggs in recently planted fields. Be sure to begin scouting fields within a week of transplanting for recently hatched larvae. As a general guideline, a treatment is recommended if you find 5% of the plants infested with larvae.
