I've never planted conventional either, but we planted some straight bt/rr corn last year late. The earworms just wouldn't stop. I'm not saying we lost a ton of yield, because the field did really well, but there were some ears that were white because the 3-4 ear worms in the ear were eating up til blacklayer and ate the tops off of all the kernels. It wasn't very high quality grain... Really exciting to see everyone adopting Viptera now. But my counter to that is, in my opinion in our April planted corn the only trait worth the money is RR. The rest, I believe, have a negative ROI.
