Did you plant sorghum

Thread starter #1
If you planted grain sorghum be on the look out for aphids. They are actually sugar cane aphids. Will make the leaves shiny and wet looking. They are very bad this year.

I’ll have to look at what I sprayed for them but I sprayed yesterday. Have to spray again in 10 days.

Also, I bet if you bought a big jug of Permethrin from Tractor Supply and mixed it up it would get them.
 
Aphids have been terrible in our area for years. I've seen them sprayed and killed and within two weeks, be back just as bad as they were originally. Despite aphids and dry weather last year, i made a decent sorghum crop. The seed variety i have been using supposedly has some resistance to them.

I was advised to repeat in 10 days. Should I or should I just watch for more aphids?
 
$315.00 a gallon

Pretty much an arm and 2 legs.
It’s like a lot of crop/food plot chemicals, the up front price is expensive but that 1 gallon will spray over 20 acs. If you only plant 1 or 2 acs per year that 1 gallon will last you a long time and you don’t want to lose a plot that you’ve got time and money invested in.
 
Plus its a newer chemistry, centric would be cheaper if you could find it but its more of a midsouth chemical. Transform is cheaper per treatment but you can't get it in small amounts. Imidacloprid would be the cheapest control but it doesn't work as well as transform or sivanto.

Yes sir. I often wonder if I should just pay a beef farmer to let me “sneak” up on a big juicy black angus and whack it. Would be so much cheaper in the long run
