Focus on Corn: A New Information Resource

A new online information resource on corn management was recently launched through the Plant Management Network. "Focus on Corn" offers webcast presentations by specialists across the Corn Belt, including University of Illinois faculty Mike Gray, Joe Spencer, Snook Pataky, and Emerson Nafziger. Webcasts currently available include details on these topics:

  • Corn rootworms and Bt corn
  • Southern rust of corn and differentiating southern and common rust
  • Silage management
  • Drying
  • Residue management, nitrogen, and tillage in continuous corn
  • Weed competition
  • Plant parasitic nematodes

To access the webcasts, go to the Plant Management Network website; then in the top bar, choose "Resources," and finally "Focus on Corn." Additional webcasts are in the works. Be sure to check this new resource out.--Carl A. Bradley
