The Corn Rootworm Conundrum: Where Do We Go From Here?


About This Episode

The different corn rootworm species remain a consistent threat for many U.S. corn growers. Though corn rootworm populations have not necessarily grown, issues related to insecticide and trait resistance development have made them a more resilient threat and created a wrench in many future management programs. Listen in as Bob Wright, research and extension entomologist for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, discusses the primary corn rootworm species affecting U.S. growers, particularly recent trends related to these pests, emerging resistance issues and key considerations for effective management now and in the future.
