Did insects bug you and your crops this year? As the 2019 growing season winds down, ISU Extension field agronomists are seeking information from producers and retailers across the state regarding what the most problematic insect pests were this growing season.

Give us your input

Taking the time to note what insect pests were a problem this year can help us all as we start planning for the 2020 growing season. Understanding what your challenges were can create opportunities for us to better share valuable resources to help everyone better manage pests, as well as understand where we need to gather more information and research for future years.

Please help us out by completing this anonymous Qualtrics survey: https://iastate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3E15UC6JimPrLqR. The information provided in the survey will be used to help direct future programming efforts. We will be posting more on the topic of insect pests and share information learned from the Qualtrics survey, so stay tuned!
