Project Summary

This regional level applied research and education project encompasses numerous field studies in southwest and western Minnesota. It involves the IPM specialists, regional educators and local extension from this area of the state. This project will be conducted on farms to detect and manage biotypes of SCN that are overcoming variety resistance and developing an infra-structure for designing on-farm trails, reporting data, and using them as training and learning centers. A second part of this project includes establishing a high yield study to determine the management and input components of yields. A third part involves field training and field surveys to help determine the level of glyphosate tolerant weeds in Southwest MN.

Project Objectives
