Many farmers across the Midwest have probably spent some time thinking about their corn rootworm management strategy and asked themselves some of these questions:
- What is the efficacy of my Bt traited corn?
- Will my current pest management strategy (continue to) work?
- Is my management strategy maximizing my return on investment (ROI)?
