Description

Management of stalk borers in corn has always be a challenge for farmers but this year seemed to be especially troublesome. The insect is not considered to be a major pest, like corn rootworms or European corn borers, but this year was an exception. Corn rows adjacent to grass terraces, fence lines, waterways, or where grass control in the cornfield was poor the previous summer were often heavily infested.
