We will cover scouting and management for insect and disease pests in rice and basic pesticide safety. A live question and answer session with Extension Specialists will also be a part of the program.
The training will serve as an introduction to insect and disease monitoring for new scouts and as a review for experienced scouts and producers. This webinar meets the requirements for continuing education course units for certified crop advisors.
We are looking forward to your participation
