Mapping pest populations in sweet corn with GPS/GIS in New Jersey: Production, dissemination, and modeling

Kristian Holmstrom, Pest Management Office, Rutgers University, Pest Management Office, Blake Hall, 93 Lipman Dr, New Brunswick, NJ

Spatial representations of current European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis Hübner) and corn earworm (Helicoverpa zea Boddie) adult populations in New Jersey are an integral part of the vegetable crop IPM Program at Rutgers University. The collection and management of data for the development of these images will be discussed, as well as current efforts at creating a spatial and temporal predictive model of European corn borer activity.

Species 1: Lepidoptera Pyraustinae Ostrinia nubilalis (European corn borer)
Species 2: Lepidoptera Noctuidae Helicoverpa zea (corn earworm)
Keywords: spatio-temporal modelling, Global Positioning System
