Sugarcane aphid is on the move

The sugarcane aphid continues to spread in Kansas sorghum and has now reached as far west as Haskell county and as far north as Dickinson county. In addition to these counties, the SCA was discovered in Edwards county today. Populations are low in these counties so far, but fields in these areas should be monitored closely. Contact your local extension agent if you discover the SCA or if you need help identifying aphids in your sorghum.
