Amalgamated Sugar Company field staff are reporting loopers and army worms have been found in sugarbeet fields in the Grandview/Bruneau areas. Other Amalgamated Sugar Company field staff are also starting to see these pests in the Treasure valley. Growers need to scout fields often. It is suggested that an insecticide be added at the time of treatment for powdery mildew. Consult your Amalgamated Sugar fieldman for more information. Jerry Neufeld Canyon County P.O.
