Corn Earworm Control in Processed Sweet Corn (1991)

Report to the Oregon Processed Vegetable Commission

Brian Croft, Glenn Fisher, Ray Drapek, and Len Coop
OSU Dept of Entomology

Objectives:

  1. Verify the relationship observed in 1990 between local corn acreage and damage.
  2. Verify the relationship observed in 1990 between wind-blocking features and damage.
  3. Look more closely at regional damage patterns. Determine if consistent regional patterns exist.
  4. Look at how well traps in one field can be used to predict damage in another field.
  5. If the improvements made in 1990 to the damage prediction model improve damage prediction in 1991 as well, they will be incorporated into CEWSIM in as simple a manner as possible.
