Abstract

Corn leaf aphids can be common in Iowa corn, but they rarely cause significant economic losses. They prefer sorghum as a host plant, but will also feed on corn, barley, millet and many grasses. Although infestations become apparent when tassels emerge, colonies can start to develop in late June.
