Best Management Practices for Corn Rootworm
Proactively manage corn rootworm. Consult with your Pioneer Sales Professional to build a customized plan for your fields.
First Break the Cycle.
Break the cycle by avoiding 3 or more years of continuous Bt trait use. Rotate to a non-host crop or plant a non-CRW Bt corn.
Second Manage Populations.
Scout fields at silking and continue weekly through grain-fill to effectively manage corn rootworm populations.
Third Protect Yield Potential.
If adult beetle populations are high or in Cry 3Bb1 or mCry3A problem areas, protect yield potential by using a Bt traited product and apply soil applied insecticide if needed.
