The Easy Way to Keep Up with Texas Sugarcane Aphid News

The sugarcane aphid has been a dynamic and serious pest of sorghum in Texas and across many southern states the last two growing seasons. In an effort to make it simple for people to keep up on Texas-specific news on where the aphid is being found and the latest research on control, scouting, and resistant hybrids, we have developed a statewide Sugarcane Aphid Newsletter. Entomology personnel from all over the State will contribute news articles.

The newsletter can be accessed here: http://txscan.blogspot.com .

You can enter your e-mail address on the blog page to receive notifications of new postings. The newsletter went live on February 26th and currently has postings on the new Section 18 for Transform insecticide and a pictorial guide to recognizing the sugarcane aphid.
