At State College and Stoneville, Mississippi, in 1961-63, 6 corn hybrids were used to determine the planting date for corn that would eliminate the most damage by the southwestern corn borer,Zeadiatrea grandiosella (Dyar). Planting dates were of greater value than hybrid corn in reducing amount of damage. Corn planted as early as March 22 had the least insect damage and produced the greatest yield.
