Description

The scientific literature contains a wealth of new information on insect biology, ecology, behavior and management, but seldom does this research directly reach the crop advisor or agri-business professional. During the last 12 months, numerous research papers have been published that may have relevance to crop production and management in Iowa. Five of these scientific papers were selected from the scientific journals Environmental Entomology, journal of Economic Entomology or Nature Biotechnology and the published abstracts are presented. Free PDFs of all but the Bt theory paper can be accessed at http://www.entsoc.org/Pubs/Overviewlindex.htm. The objective of this presentation is to create awareness of this newly published research by briefly presenting an overview of the significant findings and the implications for agriculture in Iowa.
