Caterpillars, Flies and No Rain

Monday, July 16, 2012

We had reports late last week of Tussock moth and other caterpillars defoliating plants in various fields. It would be a good time to look at your fields and make sure you don't have any strange things going on.

Also remember to look at your maggot fly traps and treat for them if you get trap captures.

On a final note, I was in several fields, in different parts of the province last week and over-all, fields are still doing ok despite the low rain fall. 

Here's hoping we get a little bit of rain this week though.

Reminder, the field day is this Saturday in Debert!
