Montana State University will host its annual Crop and Pest Management School set for Jan. 2-4 at MSU’s Burns Technology Center located in Barnard Hall. The two-and-a-half-day workshop will focus on crop and pest management in forage and pulse crops and is geared toward producers, certified crop advisers, county agents and other agribusiness.
This is the 15th year MSU has offered the workshop, which attracts a diverse and high-quality roster of speakers that includes producers, industry, government and academic agriculturists. This year’s presenters will speak on a wide range of agronomy topics, including disease and insect control, pulse agronomy, cover crop management, pea and lentil grading procedures, and legal/safety requirements of seed handling, among other topics.
In addition to MSU speakers, guest speakers for the conference are: Byron Lannoye, Pulse USA, Inc.; Todd Scholz, U.S. Dry Pea and Lentil Council; Greg Stordahl, Montana Department of Agriculture State Grain Lab; and Michael Wunsch, North Dakota State University.
Upon completion of the workshop, credits will be available for private and commercial applicators and certified crop advisers.
