He recommends growers use an insecticide when burning down the cover crop, “It is a good idea to put an insecticide like Warrior in with your burn down, and that will help control your insect problems.” He noted that last year, despite heavy black cut worm populations, growers who used an insecticide with their burndown had very little insect damage.Get more information on cover crop insect management here.https://www.in.gov/isda/ccsi/https://www.covercrops.msu.edu/general/general.html SHARE By Gary Truitt – Apr 6, 2013 Cover Crops Could Attract Insect PressureCover crops are becoming more popular in Indiana, but growers are finding insect pressure can be a problem. Planting cover crops after harvest has many advantages, including saving soil, improving soil fertility, sequestering nitrogen, and improving yields in subsequent crop yields. But Mark Lawson with Syntenga Crop Protection in Hendricks County says cover crops can attract spring insects, “Those environments with all of that material, both dead and alive, is attractive to insects.” He said, for example, black cut worm moths will come in and lay their eggs in the cover crop, feed on it until the corn emerges, and then begin to feed on the corn. Even after the cover crop has been killed, Lawson says it can still be a host for insects, “One of those is the army worm, it particularly likes killed rye and killed grasses. ” Home Indiana Agriculture News Cover Crops Could Attract Insect Pressure Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Cover Crops Could Attract Insect Pressure Previous articleVideotaping Bill Sidetracked in Indiana General AssemblyNext articleYou Can’t Feed the World With a Garden Gary Truitt

GENEVA (AP) — Independent human rights experts who work with the United Nations say Italy failed to protect the “right to life” of over 200 migrants who died when the boat they were on sank in the Mediterranean Sea in October 2013. The Human Rights Committee also called on Italian authorities to “proceed with an independent and timely investigation and to prosecute those responsible” for the deaths. The boat departed carrying some 400 people, mostly Syrians. In a decision published Wednesday, the committee said Italy “failed to respond promptly” to distress calls after the vessel was shot “by a boat flying a Berber flag in international waters” some 113 kilometers south of the Italian island of Lampedusa.
