AMES, Iowa – Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is helping Iowa farmers manage weeds, insects and diseases in their fields.

Pest management is key to high yields and quality grain. ISU Extension and Outreach specialists are working to provide the tools and resources farmers need to manage those pests. And the ISU Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinic can help farmers and homeowners alike identify diseases and insects that are impacting production.

Four extension specialists are highlighted in the video “Managing Weeds, Insects and Diseases.” They show how they are working to keep pests from harming Iowa farmers.

This is the fourth in the ISU Extension and Outreach – Agriculture and Natural Resources’ video series highlighting the impact being made by extension specialists.
