Pest Management in Southeast Arkansas
Row crop producers in southeast Arkansas deal with a diverse complex of insect pests on an annual basis. Some of the most problematic of these include the tarnished plant bug, the corn earworm/cotton bollworm, thrips, and stink bugs. The Entomology program at the Southeast Research and Extension Center works with a team of U of A Division of Agriculture personnel to develop and disseminate pest management recommendations for these and other pests of soybeans, cotton, corn, grain sorghum, rice, wheat, and other crops as needs arise.
Detailed information on specific pest/crop systems can be found here.
Please visit the Arkansas Row Crops Blog for timely updates and management information from U of A Division of Agriculture personnel.
