I am a small backyard organic gardner. I was told that a farmer friend recommended this product to use on my sweet corn. I will not apply in my surrounding vegetation. When do I apply this to my sweet corn, and how often and where do you apply it on the corn? Is it before tasseling or after pollinating?
Sevin Concentrate can be used on sweet corn up to 3 days before harvest, per the product label, however this is not an organic product. You can use PyGanic Gardening on corn up to day of harvest for the adult insects. Please take a few moments to review this Extension article which has great information about this insect.
