NDSU Crop and Pest Report available

Farm Forum

Each season brings new challenges and pest problems in crop production. One way to stay informed and effectively manage any problem is to sign up for the North Dakota State University Extension Service’s weekly “Crop and Pest Report.”

“Each issue of the report contains valuable information about insect and disease problems, pest alerts, integrated pest management strategies, pesticide updates, agronomy and fertility issues, horticulture problems, reports from the NDSU Plant Diagnostic Laboratory, important NDSU Extension meetings and a weather outlook,” says Janet Knodel, NDSU Extension entomologist and co-editor of the report. “Local reports also are included on agronomic and pest issues and crop development from agronomists located at the NDSU Research Extension Centers across the state.”
