Sugarcane Aphids in Sorghum

Author: Scott Stewart, IPM Extension Specialist Comments Off on Sugarcane Aphids in Sorghum

Just a quick update … sugarcane aphids are now present statewide at some level, and there are some fields where treatment of grain, forage or sweet sorghum is needed. As for insecticide options, only Sivanto prime is labeled for use.  The label in grain and sweet sorghum allows application at rates up to 10.5 oz/acre, however, I suggest a rate of 4 oz/acre.  I’ve had excellent success with this rate.
