Farming involves tough questions, such as determining if a fungicide should be applied to corn for northern corn leaf blight, or figuring out if yellow patches in a soybean field are caused by sudden death syndrome, a nutrient deficiency or a different disease. Crop scouting, along with knowing what questions to ask and clues to be on the lookout for, can help determine the right answers to these issues and many others. Educating the next generation of farmers is a goal of Iowa State University’s Integrated Pest Management program.
