Adjusting Corn Belt Farming to Meet Corn-Borer Conditions

Adjusting Corn Belt Farming to Meet Corn-Borer Conditions

Date: 1932
Creator: Kenneth Hayes Myers, 1898-
Description: "The European corn borer is recognized as a dangerous enemy of the corn crop.... Its eradication is considered economically impossible but it is believed that the injury may be kept at a point so low that little commercial damage will occur during normal seasons. This can be done by using control measures and practices that have proved to be effective.... On some farms some changes in the crops grown and in their sequence will aid materially in controlling the borer and may prove profitable even when borers are not present. The control program for the individual farm should be given consideration at once in order to avoid sudden disturbance of the organization and operation of the farm when control measures do become inevitable. The necessity of concerted effort by all producers in an infested district becomes evident when the life habits of the borer are considered." -- p. ii

How to Control Billbugs Destructive to Cereal and Forage Crops

How to Control Billbugs Destructive to Cereal and Forage Crops

Date: 1932
Creator: Satterthwait, A. F.
Description: Revised edition. "Billbugs destroy or injure corn, wheat, rye, barley, oats, timothy, blue grass, Bermuda grass, Johnson grass, rice, sugar cane, peanuts and chufa. The most conspicuous damage by the adult billbugs is done to young corn plants. The most costly damage is undoubtedly that done by the larvae or grubs in cutting the underground portions of plants, especially those grown for hay and pasture. Billbugs have only one generation yearly and are generally dependent on grass sods or wild sedges and rushes. Corn, sugarcane, chufa, and timothy probably are the only crops in which they can perpetuate themselves within the plant tissues. The other host plants admit of inside feeding only during the early part of the grub stage, after which feeding is completed among the fibrous roots. Parasites are valuable natural checks, but their work follows, rather than prevents, crop loss. Clean cultivation, especially the complete elimination of wild sedges and rushes; suitable crop rotations; summer or early fall breaking of cultivated or infested wild sods; early planting of crops menaced by billbugs; and the protection of birds, especially ground feeders, including the bobwhite and the shore birds, are efficient means of preventing crop losses from billbugs.
