    Still Need the Mandatory Dicamba Resistant Crop Training?

    Last year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered new dicamba herbicide product formulations for making applications to dicamba tolerant cotton and soybean crops.

    Scout Soybeans for Kudzu Bugs and Redbanded Stink Bugs

    After a mild winter, with relatively few nights below freezing, it should be no surprise that insect populations are spiking early. One example of this is armyworms, which began showing up in early-mid June across areas of Jackson County, a pest typically found later in July.  In early June, soybean pests have begun to appear …
