A new computer application developed by Nebraska and Minnesota scientists will help farmers scout for a major corn pest.

Researchers at the University of Nebraska and University of Minnesota say the app will make it easier to scout for western bean cutworms, which can reduce corn yields.

University of Nebraska Lincoln extension educator Wayne Ohnesorg says scouting this year is nearly over because of the hot and dry conditions. But he says now is a good time to download the app and practice for next year.

The free app is available in the iTune store. It allows uses to store their scouting history and review the information without internet access.

Ohnesorg says it can be downloaded to smartphones, iPads and other computers.
