This podcast episode focuses on everything risk and decisions related to insects.  Dr. David Kerns and Dr. Pat Porter discuss the background and effectiveness of Bt technologies in control, how economic thresholds are developed and utilized, the efficacy of insecticide use in crops, importance of scouting, seed treatments and layby treatments in your insect management strategies, and more.  This topic was part of our Crop Production and Plant Protection Clinic held on December 20.  It is the 2nd podcast presentation from that meeting.  Dr. Dotray's resistant weed management presentation is already loaded if you missed it.  There will be future podcasts from that meeting related to plant pathology (disease, viruses, and nematodes), knowing your varieties, and knowing the TDA laws and regulations for pesticide application.
