This year marks the fifth observation of PEST (Pest Elimination Strategy & Tactics) Week—June 13 through 17—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.
This year, Take Action will be hosting a one-hour live-stream event on Thursday, June 16, at 9 a.m. CT. Experts and farmers from around the country will discuss pest BMPs. Visit PEST Week LIVE to register.
Check out some of the following tools as you continue to plan and implement your management strategies for this season and beyond:
Be sure to follow the Take Action program on Facebook and Twitter.
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.
