Increasing populations of black birds and crows are causing a steady rise in damage to newly planted fields. Coating corn seed with Avipel prior to planting protects both the seed and emerging plants from predation. After initial sampling, birds may continue to remain in the field, eating other naturally occurring food while avoiding the treated seeds.
