Description

Fundamental concepts of pesticide stewardship are of increasing importance to support the future of Iowa agriculture. Pesticide applicators are depended upon to integrate these concepts into current crop production practices that face numerous challenges including resistance in pest populations, changes in technology, shifting land use management practices, and the rising costs of production. The complexity of agricultural production and instant access to information empowered by modern technologies are placing increasing importance on efficiency of decision-making practices and communication of on-site assessment.
