Sometimes crop injury symptoms are obvious but the insect pests causing all the damage are not. With that in mind, authors of this field guide chose to focus on diagnosis of insect injury to corn instead of on insect taxonomy.

Covers four progressive growth stages of the corn plant, from planting to maturity. Includes insect pest profiles of the 20 most harmful pests to corn production in the Midwest. Describes fields most likely to sustain injury and discusses economic thresholds and management options.

Full-color photos and detailed descriptions make this book a “must-have” for crop consultants, scouts, ag input dealers, producers and pesticide applicators.
