Abstract

Quantified the relationship between the number of Ostrinia nubilalis larvae per corn plant, plant growth stage, and corn grain yield. Average grain weight reductions across years when stalk feeding was initiated during the 10-leaf, 16-leaf, blister and dough stages of plant development were 5.94, 5.0l, 3.13, and 2.41% per larva per plant, respectively. -from Authors
