Alfalfa Weevil Scouting After First Cut

Bryan Jensen of the University of Wisconsin Integrated Pest Management Program takes you into the field to show you how to scout and manage alfalfa weevil in Wisconsin field crops. Scouting after first-cut harvest is different than scouting before harvest because it includes checking during regrowth for green up. Also, the economic threshold moves up to 50% on the count of plants showing damage.
