The easiest, cheapest, most accurate way to predict your rootworm risk
Save $30/ac or more on rootworm protection
For the price of a bushel of corn, we map the rootworm egg pressure in your field to help you predict root feeding risk, and make more informed input selections
For the first time ever you can measure true egg pressure
Pattern Ag’s Rootworm Pressure Panel can detect a single rootworm egg in a 1lb soil sample. Rootworm eggs laid in your soil is the most direct predictor of root feeding risk. Use this information to spend where you need the protection, and save on inputs where you don't.
Results drive input decisions
Tailor your hybrid & trait selection, insecticide use, and rotational decisions based on the pressure you face in each field, potentially saving you of $30/acre or more!
