The print version of the Integrated Crop Management (ICM) Newsletter will be discontinued at the close of the 2007 calendar year. A new distribution format of the ICM Newsletter is planned for 2008. Discontinuation of the printed version was a difficult decision. However, in recent years, we have experienced a steady decrease in the number of subscribers for the print version and a steady increase in printing, design, handling and shipping costs. During the newsletter’s 19-year run, ISU was the first land-grant university to publish a full color crops newsletter and deliver it to subscribers that same week. This task was accomplished through the diligence of tight scheduling and strict deadlines, under the leadership of Dr. Marlin Rice, ISU Extension entomologist and the executive editor of this newsletter.
