June is finishing as it started--slightly warmer than average--so we have gained heat on the season and are drier than usual. The extra warmth has led to relatively rapid crop growth and also rapid development of some pests. For example, western bean cutworm emergence is about 10 days to 2 weeks earlier than usual, so if you are cooperating in the pheromone trapping program with ISU, please set up your traps as soon as possible!
