Commercial corn growing, no. The grain down here is rice. But many people, including my next door neighbor and the lady across the street, grow corn in their gardens. You see it all the time in farmers markets.perhaps they just are not in your area as i don't think that is a high corn producing region of the country?
The corn ear worm goes by different names and attacks different crops. I call it a "budworm" because that's what my father called it. That's probably not a formal name but my brother knows what I'm talking about. I have seen some around bu so far they haven't found my corn, for which I am very grateful.
