Sweet Corn IPM Scouting Guide & Record Keeping Book

With funding and assistance from the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources and the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, the Vegetable Program has put together a farmer-friendly guide for using IPM in sweet corn. Using IPM in the Field: Sweet Corn Insect Management Field Scouting Guide provides quick and easy instructions with plenty of color photographs for recognizing pests and damage, setting up traps, scouting, deciding when to spray, and using the latest control methods. Bound with the Guide, a Record Keeping Book is designed to help growers keep scouting records and trap counts for the season in one easy-to-use compact spiral-bound booklet. The Record Keeping Book is also available separately. We are providing these books free of charge while supplies last to those who are interested.
