Monitoring Your Bt Fields

Scouting for European Corn Borer (ECB) and Corn Rootworm (CRW)

Scouting in both your Bt and non-Bt fields is an essential part of the insect resistance management plan. Scouting is also important to monitor for pests and diseases not controlled by Bt, such as wireworm, white grubs, seedcorn maggot, seedcorn beetle, flea beetles, aphids, mites, stalk rots and leaf diseases.
