Louisiana Insect Pest Management Guide
This 2015 guide was compiled by LSU AgCenter experts and includes regulations, precautions and suggestions for pest control in Louisiana. Detailed topics include drift of pesticides, hazards of pesticides to beneficial insects and wildlife, phytotoxicity and use of beneficial insects to control pest populations. A section on organic gardening also is included.

Sugarcane Aphids
Sugarcane Aphids
A new pest of grain sorghum was discovered in southwest Louisiana in 2013. The pest, identified as the sugarcane aphid, Melanaphis sacchari, has since been found in every parish that produces grain sorghum in Louisiana.
Green Stink Bug
The Southern Green Stink Bug and the Brown Stink Bug
The southern green stink bug, Nezara viridula (L.), and the brown stink bug, Euschistus servus (Say), are common pests in Louisiana agricultural crops including cotton, soybeans, corn and grain sorghum. The objective of this presentation is to point out some visual differences between the two species which are helpful for early field detection.
Stink Bug
Seed Treatments: An Alternative Pesticide Delivery System
In Louisiana, southern green stink bugs and brown stink bugs (Figures 1, 2 and 3) have become common pests of corn, cotton, grain sorghum, soybean and wheat. In corn, an infestation can cause injury to the plant from seedling emergence through ear formation and grain development. Seedlings punctured by stink bugs exhibit small holes surrounded by localized dead tissue.

Variety Trials
Each year the LSU AgCenter tests commercial grain sorghum hybrids entered in the state yield tests by private seed companies. From these, a grower should choose several that are adapted to an individual farm. Information in the tables should help you make these important decisions

Performance of Grain Sorghum Hybrids in Louisiana 2010
Performance of Grain Sorghum Hybrids in Louisiana 2010
Performance of grain sorghum hybrids is annually evaluated by Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station (LAES) researchers. The purpose of these trials is to provide to Louisiana growers, seedsmen, county agents of the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service (LCES), and other interested individuals and organizations with unbiased performance data for commercial grain sorghum hybrids submitted for evaluation by private agencies.
Extension Demonstrations
Extension demonstrations are conducted annually in numerous parishes throughout the state. The objective of these demonstrations is to evaluate new varieties and continue evaluating proven or recommended varieties under “real world” situations. These large-scale demonstrations are conducted primarily by the parish county agent with assistance from the state specialist and seed dealers.
