If you’re a Manitoba farmer seeing an abundance of grasshoppers in your fields, you’re not alone. John Gavloski with Manitoba Agriculture said earlier in July that populations have been on the increase for about three years.

Gavloski offers some of the strategies Manitoba producers are using this year to control grasshoppers and one spray study in the U.S. that allowed farmers to reduce their spray costs and still get 80-90 per cent effective control.
