Sugarcane Aphid in Crosby County
Sugarcane aphids have been found in sorghum in northeastern Crosby County, just west of McAdoo. There were mixed populations of SCA and yellow sugarcane aphids, both at low levels. Less than 5% of plants were infested, and colonies were small with 5-10 aphids each. Only one winged adult was found. Aphids were only on the north side of the field.
