Abstract
  • During the springs of 1988 1989, experiments were conducted to determine effective methods of controlling damage by ring-necked pheasants (Phasianus coichicus) to sprouting corn in southwestern Idaho. Plot evaluations (1988) failed to demonstrate the ability of Miller Hot Sauce Animal Repellent, Isotox Seed Treater (F), provision of alternate food, and bird scaring reflective tape to reduce damage. When evaluated using entire production fields for replicates (1989) firecrackers on fuse rope, bird scaring reflective tape, hawk-kites, and provision of alternate food all significantly reduced the number of seedlings disturbed by ring-necked pheasants. No treatment in either experiment significantly increased the number of surviving corn seedlings. Fields were damaged from germination until the average sprout height exceeded 10 cm, but damage was greatest (69%) when sprouts were less than 5 cm tall. Management recommendations to avert damage include establishing treatments prior to the onset of damage and avoiding early planting dates.
