Insect Control in Grain Sorghum

Insect control in grain sorghum is often necessary to prevent yield loss. Insecticide seed treatments such as Poncho or Cruiser have become standard when purchasing seed. These treatments help to control early season pests such as chinch bugs, aphids and a number of below ground insects. Foliar insecticide applications are sometimes needed for sorghum midge, corn earworm, fall armyworm, sorghum webworm, aphids and stink bugs. The resources below provides treatment threshold and insecticide recommendations for common insect pests found in sorghum.
