Join us Wednesday, June 30 for Field Notes when we welcome Ian MacRae, Ken Ostlie, Bob Koch, and Bruce Potter to discuss insect management issues to be on the lookout for this year. Hot and dry conditions can mean we may see different pest complexes than most years, such as spider mites. Regulatory changes for insecticides, such as chlorpyrifos, are also pending and could significantly affect what insecticide options growers have left to use this year.

What is Field Notes?

The Field Notes program is designed for farmers and agricultural professionals as a weekly webinar program addressing all your crop-related questions in real-time in an interactive, discussion-based format.

The Field Notes program will run Wednesday mornings from 7:30-8:00 a.m. throughout the growing season. It features a live webinar with interactive discussions that address in-season cropping issues as they arise. Topics may include nutrient management, agronomics, pest management, equipment, and more.
