New Pest Monitoring Website by ISU Simplifies Management of Crop PestsApril 15, 2011
Iowa State University's Corn and Soybean Initiative has recently launched its newly developed North Central ipmPIPE website. The website accessible at http://www.ncipmpipe.org is an interactive collection of maps and related resources designed to help growers and agribusinesses more easily track and manage crop pests of regional importance, said the news release.
"We built the website to serve as a regional pest management tool that can complement Iowa's local scouting networks," said Daren Mueller, coordinator of the ISU Corn and Soybean Initiative and ISU's Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. "Because of its collaborative nature, the site has the potential to become a dynamic virtual community."
