New field guide to fight vegetable insects

For vegetable producers, identifying the insects that ravage their crops is half the battle of pest management.

Bayer Crop Sciences has now helped this battle with the release of a new guide, “Field Guide to Vegetable Insects”.  This guide is being offered for free, to anyone interested; growers, non-growers, crop scouts, and so on. David Kikkert, Portfolio Manager, Horticulture for Bayer Crop Science, claims that this guide will be a critical tool for making pest management decisions.

This resource is the first of its kind with full colour photos of 39-insect pests, as well as identification keys, the crops affected and relevant management notes.  This is a great opportunity for growers to learn more about the pests in their fields and how to manage them, which could lower their costs of crop-scouts and associated outside pest management resources.

The following link will take you to a page where you can enter your information, and a copy of the guide will be mailed to your house, free of charge, in 4 to 6 weeks.  Mine’s already on its way!
