Integrated Crop and Pest Management Update will be held December 14
The 2012 Integrated Crop and Pest Management Update for agribusiness, pesticide sales and service professionals, crop consultants, field crop agents and farmers will feature MSU field crop experts and recommendations for 2013.
The Michigan State University Extension Field Crops Team, along with Eaton County MSU Extension, will host the 2012 Integrated Crop and Pest Management Update on December 14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the MSU Pavilion for Agriculture and Livestock Education. Participants will receive the MSU Extension 2013 recommendations for potential pest problems, fertilizer practices and weed control. This program is intended for agribusiness, pesticide sales and service professionals, private crop consultants, field crop educators and farmers.
One of the major objectives is to provide the agribusinesses with MSU recommendations in a timely fashion so that they can make their year-end business decisions and get ready for the 2013 season. The industry is reacting to drought-induced yield losses, high commodity prices, rising input costs, rapidly evolving technologies and potential pest problems. The agenda includes a review of the unprecedented drought season and a discussion on the 2013 MSUE recommendations.
MSUE specialists will be on-hand to answer questions. This year’s event will also feature Dr. Bob Nielsen from Purdue University and other prominent speakers. Participants will receive MDA and CCA pesticide re-certification and MAEAP phase 1 credits at this session.
