The Farm Progress 365 platform is rich with information and insights for your farm. Part of that program is an annual series of seasonal sessions targeted to different parts of the agriculture year. The next three-session series looks at crop scouting and offers an update on 2022 crop pests.

The June 2022 series – Scouting for profit – offers three live virtual sessions. The focus is to look at ways to determine pest pressures on the farm; and how to deal with them. Each half-hour sessions can be viewed in real time, or registered users can go back and view them on demand.
