IPM Crop Survey Starts (06/11/20)

Six scouts and two insect trappers were hired for the 2020 Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Survey in field crops of North Dakota!

Six scouts and two insect trappers were hired for the 2020 Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Survey in field crops of North Dakota! A webinar training was conducted on June 3rd to discuss pest identifications and scouting protocols. Field scouts will survey for major diseases and insect pests on wheat, barley, sunflower and soybean. The purpose of the survey program is to monitor for economic pests that negatively affect crop yields. Timely pest alerts will be provided for producers, crop consultants and agronomists to assist with pest management. GPS coordinates are recorded with pest data, and ArcView maps will be created to show incidence and severity of pests in North Dakota. Maps are posted weekly on the NDSU IPM web page (usually by Wednesday of each week). https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/ndipm

Important pest activity will also be summarized for the NDSU Extension Crop and Pest Report and other social media.

The NDSU IPM scouts are:

  • Sean Nichols, central and south central counties, working out of Carrington REC with Greg Endres
  • Kia Ward, southwest and west central counties, working out of Dickinson REC with Ryan Buetow
  • Spencer Furniss and Riley Racine, north central counties, working out of NCREC in Minot with Travis Prochaska
  • Scott Roseth, northwest counties, working out of Williston REC with Jerald Bergman
  • Marc Michaelson, southeast and east central counties, working out of NDSU campus, Fargo with Jan Knodel, Andrew Friskop and Sam Markell.
  • Nancy Feil and Traci Murphy, northeast counties, working out of Langdon REC with Leslie Lubenow, Anitha Chirumamilla and Benson County Extension Office with Scott Knoke
