What corn did rootworms cause problems in on your farm?

If the tumultous growing season wasn't enough stress on farmers and crops, corn rootworms reared their ugly heads this year, causing damage across the Corn Belt. The kicker is that this year there were reports of damaged Bt corn, ultimately showing resistance on the part of the rootworm. We'd like to know: Which corn did rootworms attack on your farm? Bt traited hybrids? Corn with stacked rootworm protection? Or, did you just not have rootworm problems this year? Feel free to leave a comment about rootworm pressure on your farm, and be sure to include county and state location information, too. Read more about corn rootworm.
