Armyworms ATTACK area corn fields

Please keep a close eye on your corn fields, especially those with a lot of trash or weeds. These photos taken by Wayne Roemer, an Agronomist out of our Plover location, show the extreme damage they cause. Wayne took these photos 8 miles south of Waupaca. Sally Turpin, an Agronomist out of our Mauston location, also found a heavily damaged field just north of Mauston. This pest moves rapidly and can leave only the stalk and mid rib on the corn plant. It is important to spray before the damage gets this bad. Please let us know if you need any help checking your fields.
