Crop pest management is a relatively new pest control philosophy gaining a foothold in corn and soybean production areas. Based on optimum use of control procedures, crop producers frequently make money by using pest management techniques.

Early detection minimizes losses due to uncontrolled pests and unneeded pesticide use is kept to a minimum. Either way growers find that they put more dollars in their pockets.

Many farmers are turning to professional pest managers for help in control decisions, others scout fields themselves. In all cases it is important to keep abreast of current pest management techniques. "Pest Management Tips" will bring the latest current suggestion that may help you manage pests in a timely and cost efficient manner.
