Potato Leafhopper

Low to moderate numbers of potato leafhoppers are being found on our sticky card traps and infield in both Aroostook and Central Maine. Potato leafhoppers are also being found on apples in Central Maine.  Some Hopper burn is being reported in potato fields throughout the state. Growers will want to be scouting for leafhoppers, especially following storm fronts passing through the area.
