NCGA-Logo-3Bt corn is still one of the most important technologies for controlling insect pests, but the western corn rootworm’s increasing resistance to Bt corn has caused some alarm. That’s why the folks at the National Corn Growers Association are sponsoring a five webcast seminar focusing on the many new and changing aspects of western corn rootworm management in the transgenic era, presented by Dr. Robert Wright, Research & Extension Entomologist at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

This seminar, titled “Corn Rootworm in the Transgenic Era” is located in the Plant Management Network’s ‘Focus on Corn’ resource, which is co-sponsored by the National Corn Growers Association. All five talks are freely available 24/7 to corn producers, consultants, extension agents, and other practitioners involved with Bt corn and the management of western corn rootworm.
