Cutworms on Maize

Crop Protection
Default

Cutworms are sporadic early-season pests that can reduce plant populations in a field. They often go unnoticed until after a significant number of plants have been damaged. Larger stages of cutworms cut entirely through the plant or tunnel into the plants below or above the soil line, whereas small-stage cutworms climb plants and chew small holes in the leaves. N.B You can take pictures of the diseases found in your field and send it to our field specialists for assistance.
