Sugarcane aphids building in grain sorghum

In the short video clip below, Angus Catchot, Mississippi Extension entomologist, shows sugarcane aphids building on the flag leaf of mature grain sorghum.

This will have to be addressed in this field to avoid complications with harvest equipment.

Options are Transform at .75 to 1.5 ounces per acre with a 14-day preharvest interval or Sivanto at 4 to 7 ounces acre with a 21-day preharvest interval.

Both products can successfully be mixed with either sodium chlorate or Roundup.
