Another invasive insect has arrived in Mississippi, this time to take a bite out of potentially strong hay yields. Stem maggots are joining the list of invasive species in the state that includes fire ants, fall ar- myworms, kudzu bugs, and once upon a time, boll wee- vils. Blake Layton, entomolo- gist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service, said stem maggots probably arrived in 2011, one year after they were first detected in Georgia. 2012 was the first year Mississippi entomologists documented their activity throughout the state. The mature flies are similar to horn flies in size and shape, and they have yellow abdo- mens. "They kill the last two leaves growing out of the shoot on bermudagrass," he said. "Once the late fall arrives, they can kill side shoots too. Grass looks like it has had a frost." Layton said hay produc- ers will not want to spray for these new invaders be- cause control will require two treatments and will not be cost-effective. "Most producers will go ahead and cut the grass or hay when the popula- tions reach damaging lev- els," he said. "They are not nearly as damaging as fall armyworms, which growers do control with insecticide treatments." Layton said the state has had minimal fall armyworm activity this year. "While their numbers have been lighter than nor- mal so far, there is still plenty of time for popula- tions to increase," he said. "The good news is we have a lot of effective, afford- able insecticides to control them." Layton said armyworms are cyclic from year to year. During a bad year, out- breaks can start in mid- July. Since they do not overwinter in the state, ili~i!!i~iiii!i DANGER TO FORAGE LANDS -- Rocky Lemus, forage special- ist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service, is shown examining stem maggot damage on the tips of bermudagrass growing in research plots at the forage unit at the Henry H. Leveck Animal Research Farm locat- ed in Starkville on Wednes- day, August 7, 2013. D Photo by MSU Ag Communications/ Linda Breazeale they have to migrate back as the summer progresses. Prevailing winds could be a major factor in bringing them north. Rocky Lemus, Ex- tension forage special- ist, said some fertil- ity research in Starkville shows more stem mag- got damage on plots that received higher nitrogen amounts compared with lower rates or no applica- tions. Once the damage is done, the grass stops growing, making harvest the logical option. Lemus said frequent rains have helped grasses grow, but the extra mois- ture has also contributed to increased disease pressure in recent weeks. "Bermudagrass hay fields also are being heav- ily infested with leaf-spot disease," he said. "Ideal conditions for leaf spot in- clude moderate to cool tem- peratures and abundant moisture. Damage is usu- ally more severe on stressed grass." Conditions that appear to increase susceptibil- ity include soil compaction, heavy thatch, nitrogen and potassium imbalances, and water stress like drought or excessive water. "Fungicides are not an option for use on forage grasses," he said. "One way to reduce disease pressure is burning infected biomass, cutting it for hay or grazing it. Leaf spot has also made fields susceptible to dam- age from the stem maggot as well." Lemus said maintain- ing soil fertility might be the best option to preserve plant health. "Livestock producers are having a good fall with plenty of grass in pastures as well as excellent condi- tions for hay production," he said. "That removes a lot of the worries as winter ap- proaches." John Michael Riley, Ex- tension agricultural econo- mist, said hay prices have been stable for the past few years, even with the vast drought that encompassed so much of the U.S. last year. "Hay movement typi- cally covers short distances, and Mississippi produc- ers, for the most part, had a good crop last year," he said. "Hay that was sent to drought-stricken areas most likely brought a pre- mium." ...... ! We would like to thank Gloster and the surrounding communities for the "open-arms" welcome we have received as well as provide an update on our progress. We have started construction at our Gloster site and want to take this opportunity to express our commit- ment to:-keeping the communities informed of our ac- tivities during the constru on process. Going forward we will provide a monthly update of activities and up- coming events related to the project. Construction will continue over the next year and we expect to start full operation of our Amite Bioenergy pellet manufacturing facility by early 2014. To date, our contractor has been cleanng and leveling the site to prepare for installing foundations, scheduled to be- gin by September lst We e ect construction activi- ties to rapidly ramp up following the completion of the foundations. Amite BioEnergy (a Drax Biomass International com- pany) will manufacture pelle by transforming tim- ber and forest residues sourced from the surround- ing sustainably managed forests into wood pellets. At the Amite BioEnergy facility, timber will be received, stored, debarked, chipped, dried, sized, and then pel- letized. Once the wood peIlets have been made, they will be checked for durability and qualiW, and then shipped by truck to the Port of Baton Rouge where Baton Rouge Transit (a Drax Biomass Internation- al company), is constructing a receiving, storage and ship loading facility. From the Port of Baton Rouge, the wood pellets will be loaded onto ships and shipped to the United ngdom. Over the past months, our operations team has been working with Southwest Mississippi Community Col- lege Workforce Training Center and the WIN lob Cen- ter to develop a recruitment and hiring process to hire candidates with the right knowledge, skills and expe .... fience to operate our pellet manufacturing facility. We are now in the planning stages to hold a job fair November 1st and 2nd at the South st Mississippi Community College's Regional Workforce Training Center. The job fair begin the hiring process for regular full - time jobs at our Amite BioEnergy facil- ity. hfformation regarding employment opportunities will be available at the local WIN lob Centers, as well as online at the website of the Mississippi Department of Employment Security ( Candi- dates may also visit the Drax Biomass Intenlational website at For individuals interested :in construction related jobs please send a le r stating your interest, qualifica- tions and e erience to The Haskell Company at www. haskelLcom/Careers.
