We had a lot of wind and rain last evening. I got out to check my beans (not many beans after the deer) and millet. It has blown down and to top it off army worms are everywhere. It is no where ready to cut millet is not even in the boot stage and what beans i have is not even blooming. Will the millet stand back up? Do i cut it now or drive through it and spray insecticide to kill the army worms?

I’d kill the worms.   Don’t know how you’ll coverage underneath all that.  Army worms are the work of the devil.

I have not seen my millet ever stand back up here. And like Bon said, burn those worms down.
