DECATUR, Ill. (DTN) -- Reports that black cutworm are at work in cornfields have filled my inbox this week. I know it's showing my soft farm girl side when I say that rowing the first field of corn each spring takes my breath away. On the flip side, nothing makes my stomach turn faster than seeing a path of healthy corn mowed down by this despicable pest. Wait... yesterday's word that armyworms are clipping heads of wheat may be worse -- that crop has almost made it to the finish line.
