Extension is expanding its online education and resources to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions.

Strategic Farming series: Let's talk corn insects

The Strategic Farming webinar series will provide up-to-date, research-based information to help you optimize your crop management strategies for 2021.  Pull up a chair and join in or bring the conversation with you as you go about your day. These online sessions will be very informal and open to all interested. Each session will start with a brief presentation (about 10 minutes) by the discussion leaders for the day, followed by 20 minutes of discussion, framed around farmer/participant questions on the topic.

What's bugging your corn this year?

Moderator: Dr. Anthony Hanson, Extension educator - Integrated Pest Management

Is it worthwhile to continue to plant Bt corn for European corn borer? How should Bt-resistance of corn rootworm affect management decisions?  Join us for the discussion on these and other corn pests to watch out for with Dr. Ken Ostlie, Extension entomologist at the University of Minnesota and Bruce Potter, Extension Integrated Pest Management specialist at the Southwest Research and Outreach Center.
