IPM for Field Crops

 

We help you deal with pests—with the weeds, insects, and plant diseases that infest your crops. Our research, workshops, demonstrations, and publications help you find answers to problems new and old. Of course, each farmer has different problems and different needs. And pest management doesn’t exist in a vacuum—it's closely linked with other management decisions on the farm. That's why we work closely with local extension educators, crop consultants and agricultural businesses, Cornell University faculty, and you to teach economically and environmentally sound ways of dealing with pest and farm management problems. We are part of Cornell Cooperative Extension.

 

Our Newest Resource: Asian Soybean Aphid Integrated Pest Management on Soybeans

This moodle course is to help you learn about integrated pest management for Asian soybean aphid on soybeans. The course will focus on correct identification, its lifecycle, how to sample and monitor for the pest, determine economic threshold and management practices that can be employed.

 

Our Livestock and Field Crops IPM Working Group makes long-range plans for research and extension projects, decides which IPM grant proposals to fund, and promotes informed and active teamwork in the ag community. The group comprises growers, research and extension faculty and educators, and private crop consultants.
