Author: Ben Puestow

Floppy corn syndrome is a root development issue that can occur between the V4 to V8 growth stages. This syndrome results in plants “flopping” or tipping over for a period of time and may lead to yield loss if the plants don’t recover. Interestingly, the plant usually shows visual signs before the physical tipping of the plants.

Author: Ben Puestow

Western bean cutworm (WBC) is a relatively new pest to field corn in the Midwest. While WBC is native to North America, it has primarily been a pest of specialty crops up until the early 2000s. Like European corn borer and earworms, WBC is part of the Lepidoptera family of corn pests, meaning they resemble caterpillars. Even though they look much like corn borers and earworms, their feeding and life cycle is quite different.
