Additional Details on the Winter Grower Survey
NCIPM has approved funding to develop and conduct a survey of specialty crop growers in the region to better assess the extent and frequency of herbicide drift damage. We would like to hear from state specialists before developing the details of this survey.

Note that individuals from states outside of the North Central IPM service area are very welcome to attend. This issue is not contained to one region and we hope to share research updates and discussion of broad interest.
