The European Corn Borer (ECB) Study examined biological versus chemical means of European corn borer suppression. The experiment was conducted at the LTER Main Site and consisted of three treatments: Bt corn (T1), non-GMO corn with insecticide application (T2), and a control of non-GMO corn with no insecticide application (T3). Plots were 5 x 30 m and replicated in 4 randomized blocks. The study was established in 2000 and retired after the 2004 harvest.
