Crucifer and stripped flea beetles have emerged from overwintering sites in shelterbelts and have been observed in canola fields in Langdon and Minot (L. Lubenow & A. Chirumamilla, LREC; T. Prochaska, NCREC). The adult crucifer flea beetle is a small (⅛ inch long), oval-shaped, blackish beetle with a bright blue sheen on their wing covers. The adult striped flea beetlesare similar in size and shape to the crucifer flea beetle, but they are black with two yellow strips on their wing covers. Flea beetles have enlarged hind femora (thighs) on their hind legs, which they use to jump quickly when disturbed. Their name, flea beetle, arose from this behavior. Adult flea beetles feed on the cotyledon and true leaves causing pitting and defoliation, and are usually active until the end of June.
The economic threshold is 25% defoliation in the seedling to 6-leaf stage for a rescue foliar treatment. However, economic populations have not been observed yet. This is a good time to start scouting for flea beetles in canola to ensure that the insecticide seed treatment is working and protecting against adult feeding injury. Insecticide timing is very important and rescue foliar treatments should be applied as soon as possible. Apply insecticides during the sunny, warm part of the day when beetles are actively feeding on the plants. Canola plants that have reached the 4-6 leaf vegetative growth stage or beyond can tolerate more feeding damage, unless flea beetles are damaging the growing point (center stem). Insecticides registered in canola are available in the 2016 ND Field Crop Insect Management Guide.

The NDSU Langdon Research Extension Center (LREC) has conducted agricultural research for over 100 years that is specifically designed to assist local growers address production problems in crops grown in our region. On February 18, 2016, 10:00am to 1:00pm, LREC crop production research scientists and extension specialists will deliver information, with an emphasis on canola, to assist growers prepare for the upcoming growing season.
Topics addressed at the research update include but are not limited to crop disease updates and concerns for 2016, canola row spacing, canola seeding rate, canola hybrids and seeding rate, crop sequence study with canola and soybean, ND Genesis two row barley seeding rate study, industrial hemp, canola survey, LREC soil health program impacts and new insects to be concerned about. This is a great opportunity to receive the latest information from research and extension work based at the NDSU Langdon REC. Producers will also have an opportunity to communicate research they would like the LREC to address.
There will be a complimentary lunch provided by the event sponsor, The Northern Canola Growers Association!

The mission of the Northern Canola Growers Association is to promote and encourage the establishment and maintenance of conditions favorable to the production, marketing, processing, research, and use of canola. To promote efficient production through farmer education, public and private research, labeling and registration of crop protection products; to promote uniform seed and product standards; and to work to develop and implement agriculture policies that will enhance development of the industry.
