Introducing Focus on Agricultural Practitioners

PMN proudly announces its new web portal designed exclusively for crop advisers, consultants, ag retailers, extension agents, and producers, called Focus on Agricultural Practitioners. The site was specifically developed to make it easier for these professionals to more easily access Plant Management Network’s online resources. The “Search” page is especially useful in helping locate information published in PMN’s applied journals, in extension publications from partner land-grant universities, and in practical resources from PMN’s agribusiness partners. The site also features disease and insect management efficacy trials, images for use in presentations, educational soybean management webcasts, and proceedings from ag related meetings. Please take a few minutes to click through the links on the page to learn what’s all available, and help spread the word to your colleagues and clients.
