E. Indiana and Ohio: Water Ponding, Black Cutworm, and Crop Observations

Author: Mark Apelt

Water Ponding
According to NASS, there were 4.6 and 5.6 days suitable for field work in Ohio and Indiana, respectively. Several areas in both states received greater than 2” of rain this past weekend and water was ponding in several fields.

Black Cutworm
We need to be on the lookout for black cutworms cutting plants in the next week or so. Black cutworms do not overwinter in Ohio or Indiana but are blown in on storm fronts in April and May.

Crop Observations to Date
--- Emergence, temperatures, rotary hoeing and planting time
