DUPONT PIONEER RELEASES CORN, SOYBEAN SCOUTING GUIDES
Source: DuPont Pioneer news release

Corn and soybean growers have a mobile, interactive resource, offered by DuPont Pioneer, to assist crop scouting activities this growing season-now available at pioneer.com.

The mobile-optimized web pages display lists of insects and diseases for corn and soybeans, with the seasonal timing or growth stages of the plants matched to the timing of each potential infestation.

Growers can click on the insect or disease indicated to link to:

full-color photos to help with pest identification

insect and disease life cycle information

environmental conditions favorable to infestation

crop damage photos and plant health impact

management information for prevention and control

The corn scouting calendar profiles 32 major diseases and insects, from anthracnose stalk rot through western bean cutworm. The soybean scouting calendar profiles beetles, bugs, aphids, molds and rots.

Growers can also learn scouting methods and determine treatment thresholds for major crop insects and diseases.
