Integrated Pest Management
It’s estimated that 24.5 million acres of prairie cropped land are infested with herbicide-resistant weeds.
Implementing Integrated pest management (IPM) best practices is key to battling herbicide-resistant weeds. IPM is a decision-making process that utilizes all available pest management strategies.
Priority IPM actions for managing weed resistance include:
- Reducing pesticide and herbicide use
- Effective crop scouting
- Herbicide rotation
Taking action helps the environment and will also decrease input costs. To get started, you’ll need to capture accurate pest and crop development data. Knowing historical crop scouting data allows you to make informed decisions on the most effective control methods.
The Croptivity Scouting Solution is a powerful tool for growers, scouts, and retail suppliers to collaborate and resolve crop issues in a simple, integrated workflow.
