Grant to fund new pest management program

Here in Alaska we have relatively few pests on our farms and ranches. When I think about the weeds, diseases, and insects I had to manage as a research agronomist in Washington, Idaho, and New Zealand and compare that to our pest problems in Alaska, I know how lucky we are. However, every year about two new weeds are identified and there is always a new disease or insect pest reported. The questions are, how do we keep these new pests from establishing and how do we manage the ones we have? Comments (1)
