The Integrated Pest Management Field Crop Scout Schools are designed for those who have no previous scouting experience and plan to work as crop scouts. Sessions will cover identification and scouting methods for weeds, insects, and diseases; crop growth and development of corn, soybean, and alfalfa; how to use soil surveys and some general information about soil profiles; discussion of common crop problems; and scouting goals. Many of the sessions will include hands-on diagnostic activities to help in recognizing field crop problems.
