Pest Management Update Meetings Planned Around the State
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 11/04/2016
The annual University of Wisconsin-Extension Pest Management Update meetings will be held around the state next week. Extension specialists will present the latest information on pest management and biology for Wisconsin field crops.
Speakers include Bryan Jensen, UW-Extension/UW-Madison Entomology; Dan Heider, UW Integrated Pest and Crop Management Program; Damon Smith UW-Extension field crops pathology specialist at UW-Madison Plant Pathology; and Mark Renz,
UW-Extension weed scientist at UW-Madison.
New for this year, meetings will either be in the morning or afternoon and will run for three hours. The focus of the first two hours has been changed to provide more emphasis on research updates and important highlights from the 2016 field season. The second
session will be an interactive diagnostic troubleshooting exercise based on issues observed in the 2016 field season.
In addition to a new format, a packet of information will be supplied to all registered participants.
Registration fees at each location may vary, but will be around $50 which includes access to the packets, refreshments and three hours of CEU credit.
