Scout for alfalfa weevil before and after cutting

KENTUCKY: The weather and stage of the alfalfa crop in Kentucky this time of year make fields extremely susceptible to alfalfa weevil feeding. The longer the crop is under insect pressure, the more likely yield potential will be affected. If harvest is delayed, an insecticide like Besiege® is recommended for control because it also provides residual control after cutting and during regrowth.

Growers are encouraged to be proactive about scouting before and after cutting and to be timely with any treatment applications. For more recommendations, contact your local Syngenta representative.
