As technology traits in corn seed increase seed prices and the price received per bushel increases, it is wise to consider black cutworm management in corn. Many areas of Iowa were cool and wet last spring, 2008. That weather often delayed planting and created flooded areas that had to be replanted. These conditions may have caused black cutworms to be more common than usual.
