UGA Extension – Jasper County Agricultural & Natural Resources

Georgia's Deer Capital

Vigilance pays! Fall armyworms spotted!

While attending the Morgan County Dairy Association Meeting in Buckhead last night, I heard a report of Fall Armyworms in Taliaferro County. This is relatively close to us. My recommendation is to scout daily, because we have been very lucky thus far, but our luck may not hold out forever. Many will remember repeated outbreaks and complete loss of forage last year due to the Fall Armyworm. To help warn your fellow farmers, please report outbreaks to your local Extension Office.

Because of this widely accepted practice of putting up forage is so common, there are quite a few contests available to promote and award those for producing premier forage. All of these contests offer recognition as well as prizes, and some very large prizes.
