SEED CORN MAGGOT
Have you wondered why beans,
peas, corn and cucumbers fail to
emerge? Or if they do emerge, why
seedlings are deformed? Or. why
that potato seed piece has tunnels
in it? Or why that cabbage plant
doesn't grow? Well, the cause
could be seed corn maggot. Small
brown flies are active during April
and can be seen flying over
new-tilled soil. They are searching
for a place to lay eggs. The white
legless maggots feed on germi
nating seed, seed pieces or small
transplants. Damage is most severe
in spring crops in high organic,
cool, wet soils. Of course, it helps
the maggots if the seed is planted
Some things to consider in
dealing with seed corn maggots are:
1. Avoid planting early in areas
having cold. wet. organic soils.
2. Place seed at proper depth or
shallow in well-prepared soils.
3. Use seed treated with an
insecticide such as diazinion or
4. Broadcast the soil insecticide
diazinon (Spectracide) in problem
areas prior to seeding.
5. Plant a few extra seed and thin
