Entomologist to cover Insect Pest Management in hay

The 21st Annual New Mexico Ag Expo, sponsored by Plateau, is pleased to bring Jane Breen Pierce, Ph.D., New Mexico State Extension entomologist, to discuss "Insect Pest Management in Hay."

The seminar is at 1 p.m., Feb. 19 in the McAlister Room of the Jake Lopez Bldg. on the Roosevelt County Fairgrounds. It is sponsored by Roosevelt County Electric Cooperative. This course has been approved by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture for one continuing education unit to be applied toward a private applicator's license.

Pierce will cover some of the major insect pests in hay including alfalfa weevil, beet armyworm, cutworms, white fringed beetle and alfalfa caterpillar. Control measures will emphasize an integrated pest management approach with recommendations about biological and cultural control measures for insect pests of hay which can be used to decrease the number of conventional insecticide applications.

"Profit potential can be impacted in multiple ways and pest management is a major factor controlling the bottom line," said Patrick Kircher, Roosevelt County ag agent.
