Fall Armyworm has Creeped into Indiana Corn Fields

August 8, 2016

July and August have brought in a late-appearing pest to Indiana corn fields. According to the Purdue University Extension, fall armyworms have migrated north and have been spotted in both southwest and northern Indiana counties. This fact is not surprising, considering fall armyworms are known for their unpredictability, damaging some fields while leaving neighboring fields untouched.

For fall armyworm control, Syngenta recommends an insecticide like Besiege®. Besiege provides excellent knockdown and long-lasting residual of the most difficult-to-control lepidopteran pests and other economically important pests. Its convenient premix formula contains two active ingredients with complementary modes of action for dual protection against key insect pests.
