Corn rootworm could be a problem following last year’s late crop and tough planting conditions, especially if farmers went with a less traited corn. “If that happened in areas with corn on corn, even though farmers may not have seen the pressure historically, they are setting themselves up for an opportunity for corn rootworm to re-surge,” said Nathaniel Quinn, marketing manager, AMVAC. Whether its wireworm and root maggot control in sugarbeets or rootworm control in corn, Quinn said knowing that a product will do the job is critical. “We have some good products that can help farmers navigate serious challenges. At the end of the day, consistent control is critical.”
