FMC offers new option for corn rootworm beetle control

Published:

Post-harvest is a great time to review, specifically your corn rootworm control plan. Was your 2017 strategy a win-win or a complete fail?

We had the opportunity to catch up with Tom Koranek, Great Plains Business Manager, FMC, on a new product the company is registering for corn rootworm control,  Steward EC. Koraneck said the foliar treatment is applied at tassle time to control western corn rootworm adults and is a great option, specifically with the recent resistance issues with other products. Another bonus … Steward EC doesn’t impact the beneficial insect population so no flare up of spider mites.
