Larvae causes damage by feeding on corn leaves. Then the older larvae bore into
the corn stalk which weakens the plant and causes it ear damage. The fully grown larvae stays the winter in cornstalks, corn
cobs and debris on the ground around the corn. The adults come out in the spring and reproduce.
This is hard to control since the larvae also infest weeds and wild grasses near
the corn field. The corn borer alone can get rid of 30% of the corn crop.
The Solution: YieldGard Corn
YieldGard Corn protects against insects such as the European cornborer, Southwestern
