IPM Crop Scout Program Update


The NDSU Extension Service IPM (Integrated Pest Management) field scouts currently are surveying four crops (wheat, barley, sunflower and soybean) for major diseases and insect pests, and taking general agronomic notes throughout North Dakota until mid-August. The purpose of the survey program is to monitor for the major pests of these field crops and to provide timely pest alerts for farmers and crop advisers.

The scouts choose random commercial fields. You may find a scout in your field someday this summer, and hope this is OK – they will be glad to share their notes with you! The NDSU IPM scouts are:

  • Claire Endres, central and south central counties, working out of Carrington REC with Greg Endres.
  • Brandi Herauf, southwest and west central counties, working out of Dickinson REC with Ryan Buetow.
  • Hannah Kempler, north central counties, working out of NCREC in Minot with Travis Prochaska & Shana Forster.
  • Taheni Gargouri, northwest counties, working out of Williston REC.
  • Stafford Thompson & Taylor Senger, southeast and east central counties, working out of NDSU campus, Fargo with Jan Knodel, Andrew Friskop and Sam Markell.
  • Jaime Lundquist, northeast counties, working out of Langdon REC with Leslie Lubenow and Benson County Extension Office with Scott Knoke.


Survey results are posted in map format on the web page:; and reported on in the NDSU Crop and Pest Report.
