Insect, Pest and Disease Control - Corn
The sugarcane beetle is an occasional pest of field corn in Tennessee. Infestations have been spotty to date and not too damaging in terms of stand and yield losses. However, the beetle caused serious damage in corn during the 2001 and 2002 growing seasons. The fields affected were corn planted into pasture, sod or no-till and some conventional tillage corn.
