Farm Journal’s Field Agronomist Ken Ferrie knows that there is no definite season for each pest. In Episode 6 of Corn College TV Season 3, Ferrie discusses why it is important to scout throughout the year.

Ferrie explains in Episode 6 that early cutworm feeding can be caused by winter annuals. "You wouldn’t think of it as a habitat where moths come in and lay their eggs, but these eggs were laid weeks before planting." He stresses that there is no season for cutworm and they will lay eggs in no-till or conventionally tilled fields.

"In today’s high corn prices, we’re going to have to pull the trigger quicker than we are typically used to because our loss to cost ratio is going to be quite a bit different," he says.
