Much to the happiness of farmers in the area, the North Dakota State University Extension Service has developed a new pest management app for smart phones and tablets.

This app will act as a very useful tool not only for farmers in North Dakota, but all around the country! By using information from the Weed Control Guide, Fungicide Guide and Crop Insect Management Guide, the app helps users identify pests, viruses and diseases.

To find solutions to a problem, growers can search for a specific pest or crop. Pictures of pests, diseased plants or weeds are included to make the identification process easier. The user can then save their favorite areas of the app.

More crops may be added eventually, as of now the crops included in the NDSU Pest Management app are:

  • Corn
  • Soybeans
  • Dry Beans
  • Sunflowers
  • Sugar Beets
  • Potatoes
  • Small Grains

After choosing a crop, the app will then ask you to select a pest type.
