To meet the European corn borer without plough
Over 80 participants followed the field day in the farmyard Sachsenland Röhrsdorf Wittgensdorf on the 23. September 2010.
22% of the entire areas of maize in Germany have already been infested by the European corn borer in 2005.
The tendency is further increasing and so the situation is getting worse due to the prognosed climate change which
will be related with increasing temeperatures. At the beginning of the field day with more than 80 participants Stefan Schröder, region representative of the Müthing GmbH & Co. KG, explained in his lecture how current the topic European corn borer already is and could become.
