At this year’s Integrated Pest Management Training, presenters will discuss issues likely to impact Kentucky grain producers now and in the future.

The daylong training hosted by the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, will be from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. CST March 24 at the UK Research and Education Center in Princeton.

UKAg specialists will discuss herbicide resistant weeds, insects, the use of biosolids on farmlands, and new technology for scouting and monitoring. State apiarist Tammy Horn will present the 2014 Kentucky bee report and information on 2015 bee legislation and on cover crop grants offered in Midwestern states that may prove useful to Kentucky.

The program is approved for five continuing education units for Certified Crop Advisers, which include three in pest management and one each in nutrient management and professional development. Pesticide applicators can receive two general and one specific continuing education hours in categories 1A, 4, 10 and 12.
