Workshop to focus on pest management

Soybean rust, crow control in commercial pecan orchards, and termites are among the topics that will be discussed in the upcoming Integrated Pest Management workshop in Raymond, Miss., on Jan. 24.

Mississippi State University's Extension Service is sponsoring the General Pest Management Workshop at the Central Mississippi Research and Extension Center. Registration is $10 and begins at 8 a.m. for the full-day event that will be held in the auditorium.

The program will serve as training and re-certification for agricultural consultants as well as in-service training for county directors and area agents in Extension. Ag consultants may also receive Continuing Education Units through the Certified Crop Advisor Program.
