MINNEAPOLIS — The purpose of the IPM podcasts is to alert Growers, Ag Professionals and Educators about emerging pest concerns on Minnesota Field Crops – including corn, soybean, small grains and alfalfa. We also review recent pest trends and research updates.
Our guest this week was Bruce Potter, Extension IPM Specialist, with the UMN Extension IPM Program. Bruce is located at the Southwest Research & Outreach Center (SWROC), and has >25 years’ experience developing IPM recommendations for field crops. We met with Bruce on May 30th to provide an update on Black Cutworm infestations, as well as other early-season insect populations potentially affecting corn, soybean and small grains.
This podcast was held at the KGLB Radio Station in Glencoe, and hosted by Bill Hutchison, Coordinator of the IPM Program and Dave Nicolai, Crops Extension Educator & Coordinator for the Extension Institute for Ag Professionals. Special thanks to Anthony Hanson, Extension Post-Doctoral Associate for recording and technical assistance.
