Western bean cutworm is a corn pest that has become an economic concern in some parts of Iowa in the past decade. Iowa State University led a pheromone trapping network to monitor the presence and timing of emergence of adults in Iowa. The map shows the reported data on moth captures for the season. ISU Corn and Soybean Initiative partner agronomists were surveyed in December about pest management issues in corn and soybean in the 2006 growing season.
