Subject: Winter Rye, Corn and Insects

Who has had issues with corn insects in the spring following a winter rye cover crop?
What are solutions beyond in-furrow insecticide?
---a different cover crop?
---timing of termination?
---nitrogen application timing?
---tillage versus no tillage?
---a cover crop mix?
---corn genetics?

Your thoughts would be appreciated.
