Remember the
leafliopper explosion
of last summer? Liter
ally overnight, high
populations of adult
potato leafhoppers
descended on alfalfa
fields all over the
Northeast. Even areas
of northern Pennsyl
vania and New York
were hit hard, where
potato leafhopper
(PLH) is considered
an “occasional pest."
Again, leafhopper
pressure is severe, es
pecially in southern
Pennsylvania and
Maryland. Many
spring seedlings and
second-cutting re
growth which were
not sprayed have been
seriously yellowed
and stunted.
Do you personally
sweep for leafboppers
or do you hire some
one for insect scout
ing? Regardless of
who does the scout
ing, it will pay to keep
a sweepnet handy and
team how to identify
leafhopper adults and
numphs. They can be
easily confused with
other small insects
such as aphids, almost
always caught at the
same time.
Leafhopper scout
ing is easy to do and is
the best way to decide
if an insecticide appli
cation is needed.
Don’t .wait to see
your fields turn a sick
ly yellow. Real dam
age to forage quality,
especially protein,
ahd yields occurs
quickly and before
you see the signs. The
yellowing results
from a buildup of car
bohydrate in the
leaves which can not
be translocated to the
