New Features for NDSU Extension Pest Management App

The NDSU Extension Pest Management App (which houses information from the Plant Disease Management Guide, Insect Control Guide and Weed Control Guide) has recently been updated with new features. These features include a banner, a pest identification help tool and calendar function. The banner is displayed on the home screen of the app and will highlight important pest and pesticide information throughout the growing season (Figure 1). The pest identification help tool allows for digital diagnosis of pests through photos submitted by app users (Figure 2). This will help with preliminary assessments of pests, but for a more complete diagnosis, individuals may be asked to submit samples to the NDSU Plant Diagnostic Lab. The calendar function provides information on upcoming Extension events (Figure 2).

For questions pertaining to the app, please contact Andrew Friskop (Andrew.j.friskop@ndsu.edu).
