This year marks the fourth observation of PEST (Pest Elimination Strategy & Tactics) Week, which aims to boost awareness around the United Soybean Board’s (USB) Take Action program. Mid-season is a crucial time of year for pests, and the program website offers tools and resources to help combat resistance against weeds, diseases and insects.
Check out some of the following tools as you continue to plan and implement your management strategies for this season and beyond:
- Fungicide Lookup Tool
- Cover crops and weed control
- Multiple modes of action for insect control
- Managing Corn Rootworm
- Herbicide Lookup Tool
With the investment of state corn grower checkoff dollars, the National Corn Growers Association partners with USB to help bring these Take Action tools and resources to growers. To download the app on your tablet or mobile device, visit iwilltakeaction.com/app.
