The University of Tennessee Cotton Insect Scout School is scheduled for Friday, May 26 at the West Tennessee Research and Education Center in Jackson. Registration begins at 8:00 AM with the program starting at 8:30. Content will include hands-on training with an optional ‘go-to-the-field session’ after a box lunch. No fee of preregistration is required.
A new web-based, mobile friendly Cotton Insect Field Guide is now available. Add this to the home page of your phone or tablet for app-like access to information on insect management including sampling methods, treatment thresholds, and insecticide selection. There are some also some good pictures. This guide (and others) can also be accessed from this news site. I hope add a similar resource for soybean by mid-summer.
