Urbana, Illinois (January 7, 2020)--The 2019 edition of our annual report on applied research in field crop disease and insect management can be downloaded at the following link: https://uofi.box.com/v/2019PestPathogenARB.

 

Each year, University of Illinois plant pathologists and entomologists produce a summary of the applied research we have conducted to inform disease and insect management practices in Illinois. This information provides a non-biased, third-party evaluation of control tactics such as pesticides and resistant varieties for use in corn, soybean, and wheat.


   

The 2019 report includes information on the following topics:

Surveys of insect pests and soybean cyst nematodes

Control evaluations for diseases of corn, soybean, and wheat (including southern rust, tar spot, fusarium head blight, and more)

Evaluations of Bt trait packages and soil insecticides in corn and foliar insecticides in soybean (including western corn rootworm, bean leaf beetle, dectes stem borer, and others)
