Alfalfa Weevil - Central Illinois

Doing some field scouting this morning and Alfalfa Weevil has been at work on this central Illinois field. It has reached the threshold where an insecticide spay is necessary to correct the issue. Pyrethroid insecticides work great on the larvae stage when the weevils are actively feeding. Pyrethroids also have a very short harvest interval, which makes it ideal for alfalfa production. The addition of one quart of BRANDT N-Boron will assist with plant recovery, increased protein and flowering.
