Feasibility of fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (Smith) control on late-planted dent corn
Straub, Richard; Hogan, Harold
During the late summer of 1973, fall armyworm populations were abnormally high in the Hudson River Valley, and the resulting severe defoliation to late-planted dent corn caused much concern to producers and extension service personnel. Due to the ragged appearance of the plant resulting from larval feeding, a heavily infested field can be quite alarming. Many inquiries were received at this laboratory pertaining to the necessity of applying control measures to combat this pest.
