Field studies were conducted from 1974–76 to determine the effectiveness of several insecticides applied in formulations of granules or sprays in controlling populations of Ostrinia nubilalis (Hübner) in silage corn and the effect of control on the whole plant and the grain component yield of corn harvested for silage. All treatments reduced significantly the number of borer tunnels per plant recorded at harvest time with carbofuran, ethyl parathion, diazinon, fonofos, NRDC-143 (3-phenoxybenzyl (±) -cis,trans-2,2-dimethyl-3-(2,2-dichlorovinyl)cyclopropane carboxylate), WL 43775 (Benzeneacetic acid, 4-chloro-alpha-(1-methylethyl)-cyano(3-phenoxyphenyl)-methyl ester), N-2596 (O-Ethyl S-(p-chlorophenyl) ethyl-phosphonodithioate), and fensulfothion providing the best control. Silage yields were not affected significantly by any treatments, despite excellent borer control. However, a significant increase (P = 0.05) in the grain component of the silage was observed in 1974 from plots treated with carbofuran, ethyl parathion, carbaryl, and diazinon.
