The two most important pests that reduce soybean yield (nematodes and aphids) are evolving, becoming resistant to commonly used pest management tools. This workshop will provide research-based, sustainable pest management recommendations for the control of soybean cyst nematode and soybean aphid. Information provided will include updates on the status of resistant pest populations in Iowa and hands-on demonstrations of sampling and managing both pests.
Check-in will begin at 8:30 am. The program will start at 8:50 a.m. and conclude at 4:15 p.m. This workshop is open to anyone that wants to learn more about managing resistance in soybean aphid and soybean cyst nematode, particularly crop consultants, agronomists or farmers.
This workshop qualifies for 6.5 pest management credits for Certified Crop Advisers, subject to board approval.
The registration deadline is midnight, August 9, 2017. Visit www.aep.iastate.edu/feel/resistance for event details.
