  • New Water Quality BMPs for Ag Insecticides
    Extension Entomologist Bob Koch summarizes new Minnesota Department of Agriculture best management practices for agricultural insecticides. If you use insecticides that contain chlorpyrifos (such as Lorsban, Cobalt, Dursban, Nufos, and Yuman), the BMPs are especially relevant to your farming practices.
  • N management after a wet spring
    After another spring of record rainfall events, it is possible that nitrogen was lost to leaching. U of M Extension references are available to help with nitrogen management decisions.
  • Late summer soybean pests
    Now that soybeans are flowering, it’s time to scout for pests of the reproductive stage.
