News & Events

IPM Specialist Bruce Potter will lead a virtual Corn Rootworm Plot Tour on Tuesday, August 11 from 1:00 - 1:30 pm.

In this webinar, we will discuss a corn rootworm experiment at the University of Minnesota Southwest Research & Outreach Center near Lamberton. This continuous corn site has severe western corn rootworm damage. We will show how a susceptible hybrid and three Bt-RW pyramids held up to rootworms with and without an insecticide overlay at this location and then discuss ways to evaluate corn rootworm and manage corn rootworm risk.

The webinar is free, but participants must pre-register online here. An email address is required to register, and participants can join the webinar from a computer, tablet or phone.
