Inputs: The Podcast
Battling Bt-resistant European corn borer

December 21, 2021
by Gowan Canada


First found in Canada in the early 1900s, the European corn borer (ECB) is one of the most problematic corn pests. Found wherever corn is grown, from the Prairies to the Maritimes, ECB can impact grain quality, yield and harvest. Bt corn hybrids have helped to mitigate some of these risks, but in recent years, Bt-resistant European corn borer has been found in parts of Canada.

In this episode, Jocelyn Smith from the University of Guelph’s Ridgetown Campus shares insights and updates on Bt-resistant European corn borer and some best management practices for corn growers.
