SCOUTING TOP CROPS: Maintaining crops and making in-season decisions requires having timely information. The Farm Progress 365 June seasonal sessions focus on scouting and a live update on key pests for corn, soybeans and cotton. Make plans to sit in on one of these virtual sessions.
Farm Progress 365 upcoming virtual seasonal sessions for June offer live conversation on hot crop topics.

The Farm Progress 365 platform is rich with information and insights for your farm. Part of that program is an annual series of seasonal sessions targeted to different parts of the agriculture year. The next three-session series looks at crop scouting and offers an update on 2022 crop pests.

The June 2022 series – Scouting for profit – offers three live virtual sessions. The focus is to look at ways to determine pest pressures on the farm; and how to deal with them. Each half-hour sessions can be viewed in real time, or registered users can go back and view them on demand.
