IPM Survey Underway

Six scouts were hired for the 2018 Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Survey in field crops of North Dakota! IPM Training was conducted for the scouts on May 23rd at the Carrington REC. Field scouts will survey for major diseases and insect pests on four crops including 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 are 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). Important pest activity will be summarized for the NDSU Extension Crop and Pest Report and other social media.
