Crop-Scouting Takes Minimal Investment for Huge Returns
by Joe Lawrence, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Lewis County
I often find myself having the same conversation with farmers about the value of scouting their fields (or hiring someone to scout them if they don’t have the time). This year, the infestation of Armyworm and Potato Leafhopper has highlighted the importance of scouting your crops. Now the question is, sure it would have paid in 2012 but would it have paid in 2011 or any other year?
The answer is undoubtedly YES, it pays each and every year.
