Lygus, grasshoppers, diamondback moth larvae and early bertha armyworms have been reported, as have thrips and swede midge damage, but generally nothing requiring significant widespread action. Individual fields or parts of fields may be at risk of economic loss, but overall it is a quiet week on the insect front.
