Rootworm problems go farther north – Voice Of Muscatine

Rootworm problems go farther north

An agronomist says more farmers are dealing with the problems caused by corn rootworms this year.

Samantha Brantner with Bayer tells Brownfield corn rootworm infestations are being found in areas that didn’t have problems in the past. “We’ve got, you know, rootworm beetle traps across even northern Wisconsin and finding fields even north of Green Bay that are at the threshold and seeing some economic loss from corn rootworm itself.”

Brantner says this growing season has had noticeable damage from rootworms.
