Effective and efficient management of in-season pests is critical to maintaining a successful and sustainable farming operation. Current and future technology tools and strategies are leading to better management of in-season pests. Two leading researchers discuss their work and findings on the topic in this informative webinar.

Part 1: Disease Management and Precision: Improving Fungicide Efficacy and Yield 
Plant disease development requires specific environmental conditions within a field, a reason for variation in disease severity across the field. However, fungicide application (seed or foliar) is traditionally done for the entire field. Precision agriculture tools, including satellite imagery and drone images, can now help to pinpoint problematic areas in the field to scout and plan a timely fungicide application only to affected areas. This presentation shares how these tools are being used to determine white mold development in South Dakota., as well as some other plant diseases.


Part 2: In-Season Spray Application: Technology for Improved Accuracy, Efficacy and Stewardship 
Product and practice decisions are critical to ensuring spray applications are on target and efficacious. This presentation addresses the technology side of in-season application, from variable rate technology selection and droplet size and pressure uniformity. Dr. Sharda will also discuss the importance of calibrated nozzles and achieving the correct spacing.
