A note on pesticide recommendations

Hands down, the most common question I am asked as an extension specialist is "what do I spray to control X?" I knew this would be the case from the get-go, and I enjoy helping growers and the public make good decisions about what, when, and how to use pesticides on their crops. That said, this blog will not be a forum for making those recommendations. Pesticide labels change frequently and vary by state. Because I don't know where you (hopefully there's a you) are from, what's available in NC may not be available or legal for your use. NC residents can refer to the NC Ag Chem Manual for recommendations for specific crops or can contact me directly for more detailed information. Interested parties outside NC are welcome to also contact me, and I will do my best to put you in contact with the right folks for recommendations in your state.
