Last week, the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Crops Team held its Field Scouting Basics Workshop for those who will be scouting fields this growing season. For those that might have missed this day-long virtual seminar, we've uploaded the entire virtual workshop to the Iowa State IPM and Crops Team YouTube pages.
In these seminar videos, Iowa State Extension specialists and field agronomists deliver instruction on crop staging and development, and weed, insect and crop disease identification in Iowa corn and soybean production. In addition, specialists illustrate principles of integrated pest management (IPM), and an overview of basic field scouting skills including sample collection, observation and documentation.
