Proceedings of the Integrated Crop Management Conference
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The Iowa State University Integrated Crop Management Conference is Iowa's premier crop production education event. No other program in Iowa brings together the diverse range of topics, slate of expert presenters and results of the latest University research.

The ICM Conference offers workshops focusing on the latest in crop production technology. Experts from Iowa and surrounding states will provide research updates and results in soil fertility, soil and water management, crop production and pest management.

Abstract

Corn grown for seed is often affected by the same pests as are found in corn grown for grain. However, integrated pest management (IPM) decisions can be considerably different from those in grain production. This is because inbreds are typically less tolerant than hybrids to stress from pests and the value of the seed is considerably greater than corn for grain. European corn borer and corn earworm are probably the two most significant economic insect pests in seed corn production fields. Following is a summary of the highlights of research conducted at Pioneer Hi-Bred International and experience from seed production fields regarding key components of IPM decision making for these insects.
