Manage slug pressure by ensuring crops can outgrow feeding pressure early in the season.
Slug damage in corn and soybeans has increased with the adoption of no-till and minimum-till practices. Because rescue treatment options are limited, growers should take steps to prevent slug damage.
Slugs can be difficult to manage in no-till systems, but planning ahead and using a coordinated integrated pest management approach can prevent damaging yield loss. For more information, contact your local Mycogen Seeds
