The UW Integrated Pest Management Program Field Scout Training Class will be offered on March 14-15, 2022 at the University of Wisconsin River Falls Campus. This 2-day intensive course is perfect for those interested in crop scouting or seeking professional development.
Topics covered include: crop scouting techniques, nutrient management and deficiency symptoms, and pest identification/life cycle/damage symptoms and economic thresholds, including some pest management recommendations.
The class will have a field crop emphasis on corn, alfalfa, soybean and wheat, however many of the pests discussed are problematic in Wisconsin’s varied cropping systems.
