Tomorrow your e-mail notification and the newsletter will look a little different. Mizzou Crop & Pest News will replace the IPCM newsletter. We will launch a series of articles during early March that cover traditional topics and a few new topics. If you have concerns or questions, please reach out.
Finally, I took on the MU Integrated Pest Management (IPM) coordinator role in January and will manage the newsletter.
A little background: I am an MU extension specialist and have worked with State Extension Weed Scientist Kevin Bradley in the weed science program since 2014. I grew up on a row crop and beef cattle operation in central Missouri, graduated from MU in the Division of Plant Sciences, spent a decade on the east coast to continue my education, and am happy to be home at Mizzou.
Again, if you have concerns or questions about the newsletter or Missouri IPM efforts, please let me know. And, if you like the newsletter updates, please share.
Mandy Kendrick Bish, IPM Coordinator
