|Volunteers Needed to Monitor Alfalfa Weevil (Cropland Insects)
Pestweb (https://pestweb.montana.edu/) is an online “real-time” monitoring system designed to help producers track the distribution of key crop pests, providing rapid response to developing and expanding pest problems. Pestweb is now offering population tracking for alfalfa weevil in Montana. To make this program work, we need dedicated volunteers from farming, ag extension, and other agronomic backgrounds to survey alfalfa weevil and report the numbers in the online data base. A descriptive add recruiting volunteers is attached to this alert.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Ruth O’Neill, firstname.lastname@example.org, 406-994-5176.
