Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Bt corn targeting corn rootworm and soil insecticide, either alone or in combination, for management of larval corn rootworm injury. The Bt trait packages evaluated in this study were DeKalb Smartstax RIB, Pioneer AcreMax Xtreme (AMXT), and Pioneer AcreMax Xtra (AMX). Also evaluated were two soil-applied insecticides?Aztec HC and Index CS.
