Survey of First-Year Corn Rootworm Damage Continues

August 16, 2002
To date, our campus research team and the IPM and Crop Systems Extension Educators have completed first-year corn rootworm damage surveys in more than 20 counties. We intend to continue this survey for the next few weeks. By analyzing these data, we hope to improve our understanding of the continuing spread of first-year corn rootworm problems across much of the state. In addition to the results from this research, we continue to review data from our insecticide trials at DeKalb, Monmouth, and Urbana. In our early September issue of the Bulletin, we'll share these findings with you.--Mike Gray
