Outbreaks of the Alfalfa webworm (Loxostege commixtalis Walker), Wheat head armyworm (Neleucania albilinea Hubner), Spotted cutworm (Agrotis c-nigrum L.) and the Armyworm (Cirphis unipuncta Haworth) occurred in Southern Minnesota in 1932. It was found that the infestations of the Armyworm appeared first in winter rye on peat soil and that later they migrated to other crops. Elimination of winter rye as a crop on peat soil, pasturing winter rye in fall and spring, close observation of rye fields in May and early June to discover Armyworms if present, and the use of poison bran mash are suggested as control measures.
