Grasshoppers, cutworms and flea beetles were all widespread concerns in 2019. All of these insects are capable of overwintering in Manitoba, given the right conditions. There can be challenges monitoring and making management decisions for all three of these groups of insects. Monitoring and well planned management strategies can, however, save farmers money and contribute to sound integrated crop management. Come learn about what to expect from the insects in 2020, what factors can alter populations, and tips for monitoring and managing these insects.
