Dr. Anthony Hanson, IPM Extension Educator & IPM Co-coordinator from University of Minnesota, will share, “Region-wide Surveys and Pest Forecasting for Advancing Minnesota IPM,” on Wednesday, February 16 at 1:30 pm ET (12:30 pm CT).
Efficient pest management revolves around understanding what’s actually developing in individual fields. What pests are present? Is it the right time of year to look? Is the pest population high enough to justify treatment? While scouting your fields can help you make insect management decisions, region-wide surveys and pest forecasts can help you stay aware of increasing pest threats in order to determine when focused scouting is needed.
Join Hanson’s webinar to learn about tools that will help you know when to scout. These tools from the University of Minnesota Extension include the spring and summer western MN IPM survey for small grains and soybeans, the fall European corn borer survey, and degree-day maps for forecasting pest development and critical scouting time.
