Focus on Insects: A Review of the Top 5 Research Articles in Agricultural Entomology
Is Version Of
The Iowa State University Integrated Crop Management Conference is Iowa's premier crop production education event. No other program in Iowa brings together the diverse range of topics, slate of expert presenters and results of the latest University research.
The ICM Conference offers workshops focusing on the latest in crop production technology. Experts from Iowa and surrounding states will provide research updates and results in soil fertility, soil and water management, crop production and pest management.
The scientific literature contains a wealth of new information on insect biology, ecology, behavior and management, but seldom does this research directly reach the crop advisor or agri-business professional. During the last 12 months, numerous research papers have been published that may have relevance to crop production and management in Iowa. Five of these scientific papers were selected from the scientific journals Environmental Entomology, journal of Economic Entomology or Nature Biotechnology and the published abstracts are presented. Free PDFs of all but the Bt theory paper can be accessed at http://www.entsoc.org/Pubs/Overviewlindex.htm. The objective of this presentation is to create awareness of this newly published research by briefly presenting an overview of the significant findings and the implications for agriculture in Iowa.
