IPM Crops Podcasts

Welcome to the IPM Podcast series for Field Crops - 2019! The podcasts are sponsored by the University of Minnesota (UMN) Extension Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program. Our goal with the podcasts is to alert Growers, Ag Professionals and Educators about emerging pest concerns with Minnesota Field Crops --- including corn, soybean, small grains and alfalfa ---- and offer useful, research-based pest management solutions. The podcasts are co- hosted by Dr. Bill Hutchison, Coordinator of the MN IPM Program and Dave Nicolai, Crops Extension Educator & Coordinator of the Extension Institute for Ag Professionals.
