Each year, we produce a report of our applied research efforts related to insect and disease management in field crops. New for this year, we’ve created a landing page at https://extension.illinois.edu/global/field-crop-insect-and-disease-applied-research, where you can view this year’s report along previous versions (2018-2020). The 2021 report includes several highlights, such as:
- Western and northern corn rootworm Bt resistance monitoring, as well as trait performance in field experiments
- New surveys of dectes stem borer stem tunneling and corn rootworm sticky traps, along with results of the annual Statewide Insect Survey
- Evaluations of foliar fungicides, insecticides, and seed treatments in corn and soybean
Download the report today for free at the link above and enjoy some snowy day reading. As always, don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
