Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Forage grasses growing in field plots in Kansas and Wyoming were evaluated for relative suitability as over-summer hosts for the Russian wheat aphid. Aphid numbers varied greatly among grasses and between the two locations. Some of the grasses, especially in Wyoming, may serve to maintain a reservoir of aphids capable of moving into volunteer or early planted wheat.
