Integrated Crop Management (ICM) News is your link to the latest crop and weather interviews conducted by Doug Cooper, Iowa State University Extension communication specialist. Every Monday, Cooper visits with Extension climatologist Elwynn Taylor, integrated pest management specialist Rich Pope, and corn agronomist Roger Elmore or soybean agronomist Palle Pedersen. Once a month, Chad Hart, ISU grain markets specialist, is included in the program. Together, they take a look at the latest Iowa Crops and Weather report and the most recent USDA's Crop Production report.
Late Monday or early Tuesday, a link to the weekly interviews is posted under More Resources in the right column of the ICM News homepage, along with a brief summary of the conversation.
In addition to crop and weather interviews, Cooper produces weekly Extension interviews and posts a daily closing grain and livestock report; both are made available via internet.
