Managing evolving pests: A workshop providing research-based recommendations for sustainable crop protection.
Thursday, August 17, 2017
Field Extension Education Laboratory
1928 240th Street, Boone, Iowa | map link
The two most important pests that reduce soybean yield (nematodes and aphids) are evolving, becoming resistant to commonly used pest management tools. This workshop will provide research-based, sustainable pest management recommendations for the control of soybean cyst nematode and soybean aphid. Information provided will include updates on the status of resistant pest populations in Iowa and hands-on demonstrations of sampling and managing both pests.
- This workshop is open to anyone that wants to learn more about managing resistance in soybean aphid and soybean cyst nematode, particularly crop consultants, agronomists or farmers.
- This workshop qualifies for 6.5 pest management credits for Certified Crop Advisers, subject to board approval.
