View this webinar to learn more about the Iowa Pest Resistance Management Program (IPRMP), an Iowa-specific effort to address pests--including weeds, insects and diseases--that can adapt and become resistant to chemical, genetic, and agronomic control practices. The IPRMP outlines approaches for protecting your crops with effective, integrated management solutions that will sustainably control pest
The Harrison County Herbicide Resistance Project features side-by-side comparison of 10 herbicide programs in both corn and soybeans. Join us from 9:30am to 11:00am for a field walk at the corn plot (address coming soon) to gauge success and implications for future resistance management. This event is free and open to the public, and coffee and donuts will be provided.
The Harrison County Pest Resistance Management Project team will hold a field day Wednesday, July 7. The event, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., will include both herbicide and fungicide trials in soybeans at a farm southwest of Logan, operated by Larry Buss. This event is free and open to the public.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released two pesticide registration notices (PRNs) that impact how technology providers, crop advisers, and producers manage resistance. These documents are in addition to a new framework to address Bt resistance in corn rootworm released in 2016. These releases, which all went through public comment, provide guidance in managing resistance and support the strategies and goals of the Iowa Pest Resistance Management Program (IPRMP).
We are entering an era where successful weed management requires a planning process. Learn more about elements you should consider for your plan from Tony Pleggenkuhl, regional sales agronomist, Stine Seed, John Cantwell, farmer and weed management technology development representative, Monsanto and Kent Bennis, marketing specialist and farmer, Dow AgroSciences.

DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey, Iowa State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Associate Dean John Lawrence and Iowa farmer Larry Buss of Logan today announced the release of the Iowa Pest Resistance Management Plan. A video of the announcement is available here.
Version 1 of the IPRMP is an Iowa-specific plan that seeks to engage farmers on the issue of pest resistance management with the goal of keeping technology and tools such as pesticides, seed treatments and biotechnology products and native traits available and effective.
Harrison County was the site of three recent events highlighting local efforts addressing herbicide resistance.
