There is a lot of discussion lately about grain storage and quality. I wanted to make you aware of webinars that may be of interest to you. I was part of a regional project that organized a 4-part webinar series focused on stored grain IPM in the north central region. Here are the topics and links to the YouTube videos. 

Part 1: pest insect biology and identification, and basics of IPM

Part 2: pest prevention

Part 3: IPM for stored corn

Part 4: fumigation-decisive control, when needed

Featured speakers include entomology experts like Dr. Tom Phillips (Kansas State), Linda Mason (Purdue), and Frank Arthur (USDA-ARS). I encourage you to take some time and watch the videos to better understand stored pest IPM. It's a free webinar series!
