PEST FOCUS

Geneva:

No pest activity. Degree day accumulation has held way below last year's extremely high value, up until this time. It is considerably below the calculated 10-year "Normal", as well, indicating that we might see a slower beginning to this year's growing season. Then again...

Highland:

No pest activity.
