Sugarcane aphid occurrence and management information for Texas grain and forage sorghum producers
Tuesday, July 26, 2016
On July 21st, I received word that Eddie Meeks (crop consultant) found sugarcane aphids while scouting in a sorghum field near Black, TX. Black, TX is approximately halfway between Hereford, TX and Friona, TX on US Highway 60. This is the farthest northwestern location that the sugarcane aphid has been reported on the Texas High Plains.
