Alfalfa Stands Suffer Loss Before Yellowing

Potato leafhopper attacks can reduce crude protein, lower dry matter yield and reduce winter survival. These mid-to-late season alfalfa pests suck sap from plants and damage leaflets. Restriction of water and nutrient flow causes yellowing of leaf tips. Severely damaged plants will be stunted, if leafhoppers are not controlled. Damage typically first appears along the edge of fields, but field scouting is recommended to detect leafhoppers before yellowing appears. Highly resistant varieties suffer significantly less damage and inhibit leafhopper populations. Leafhopper burn appears as yellow wedge-shaped areas on leaf tips.
