Cool temperatures coupled with periods of rain have kept much of the state’s corn out of the ground. As producers hustle to compensate for lost planting time, they should be aware that late-planted corn could present a different insect scenario this year.
The good news is the state’s late-planted corn is not likely to see increased problems with corn rootworm and is likely to see reduced wireworm damage. However, several pests do not arrive until later in the season, and these pests could pose the greatest threat to yields.
