With pests popping up early in Mid-South farmland (see here [2] and here [3]), producers may want to check out www.syngentapestpatrol.com [4].

The site allows users to access pest alerts online or they can register to receive text message alerts each time their area researcher records a new update.

It's a two-step process:

  • First, fill out the info online.
  • Second, reply to the confirmation text with a 'y' to complete the subscription.

Alternatively, users can sign up for text messages directly from their phone:

  • Text to short code 97063.
  • Text word that corresponds with the entomologist you want to get text alerts from: Stewart = "PestPat12"; Catchot = "PestPat5"; Lorenz = "PestPat6"; Kerns = "PestPat4"
  • Reply to confirmation text with a 'y' to complete subscription. You can register for more than one text alert, but will receive a confirmation text for each researcher.
