Winter meetings are a good place to pick up the latest pest management information.  Many local crop production meetings sponsored by the county extension service include information on weeds, insects, and diseases.  In addition, two major winter meetings at Purdue University include pest management topics.

The Indiana Plant Food and Agricultural Chemicals Conference will be held Dec. 16 and 17.  The program includes speakers who will discuss pest biology and discuss the latest control recommendations.

Pest management information will be presented for corn, soybeans, alfalfa, and livestock.  Vegetable, ornamental, and fruit pests will also be discussed.

These meetings are excellent opportunities to get the latest pest management information.  Unless your cropping practices include a corn, soybean, and Florida rotation, learning more about pest management is a profitable way to spend a winter day.
