Control of rootworms, cutworms, chinch bugs, corn earworms, fall armyworms, stink bugs, cucumber beetle and stalk borers.
For the corn and sorghum industry to remain viable, it is essential that producers and consultants be able to manage weed, insect and disease issues.
In Louisiana, southern green stink bugs and brown stink bugs (Figures 1, 2 and 3) have become common pests of corn, cotton, grain sorghum, soybean and wheat. In corn, an infestation can cause injury to the plant from seedling emergence through ear formation and grain development. Seedlings punctured by stink bugs exhibit small holes surrounded by localized dead tissue.
2011 recommended treatments and thresholds for corn and grain sorghum insects. Brief biological sketches of pests included. (PDF Format Only)
