Webinar on Western Corn Rootworm

Corn producers may be interested in this upcoming webinar at 2 PM (Eastern Time Zone) on February 20th.  This webinar features experts on western corn rootworm (WCR) biology and management from the western corn belt.  There has been a renewed interest in WCR in this area of the country ever since growers have reported problems with resistance to Bt (Cry3Bb1).  While this webinar will provide very valuable information, producers should keep in mind differences in managing WCR in Ohio than what is occurring out west. For example, we have no reports of Bt resistance yet in our state, and crop rotation remains our best management tactic to prevent resistance from occurring, as well as prevent damage from WCR.  The webinar can be accessed here:  Just enter your name, and you will be able to attend the webinar.  This webinar is supported by the USDA-NIFA North Central IPM Center.
