“Corn rootworm has kind of creeped up on us. There are some producers that really have a problem, and I think Agrisure Duracade will be very beneficial for them. In our fields, I think the standability of the Agrisure Duracade hybrids has been very good. I've seen no problems with it at all.”

“The impact corn rootworm damage has had on the bottom line has been pretty substantial in corn-on-corn situations; I’d say it’s cost us somewhere around 20 bushels an acre. The Agrisure Duracade corn roots that we dug, I was unable to find any corn rootworm feeding outside of a couple of plants on the outside edge of the field – in the field as a whole we didn’t see any rootworm damage in the Agrisure Duracade corn. Agrisure Duracade has been a very good product and I’ll continue to use it.”
