Crop scouting reports

Crop scouting is an essential part of integrated pest management (IPM). Scouting programs are designed to protect and maximize crop yield and quality while minimizing the risk associated with pesticide use. 

Each week, an extension agronomy specialist scouts fields in Barton County and then report their findings through an automated phone service and email message. The message will go out to everyone signed up for the program.

The weekly field scouting report is sponsored by University of Missouri Extension and Barton County Extension.  To receive the 2015 weekly scouting reports, print the 2015 Crop Scouting Enrollment Form, complete and return with payment to Barton County Extension, 801 E 12th, Lamar, MO 64759 or contact the MU Extension Center in Barton County, 417-682-3579.

The cost of the program is only $35 per phone number, $95 for three numbers and $30 per phone number for those with four or more.
