There's a new online source in Iowa for crop production news. It is the Integrated Crop Management, or ICM news Web site at www.extension.iastate.edu/cropnews. The site replaces the print-based version of the Integrated Crop Management newsletter. "This online source for crop production news and information provides greater access to Iowa State University Extension resources and enhances the timeliness of information farmers need to make decisions about crop production," says Gerald A. Miller, associate dean, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and director of ISU Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension. Some of the new features of the site include:
• Weekly or daily e-mail notification of new articles
• Quick access to crop production sites at Iowa State University
• Easy-to-print single articles and weekly compilations
• Timely advice on how to deal with rapidly changing crop and weather conditions
"This Web site will build upon the reputation that the ICM Newsletter developed over the past 19 years. We want Iowa crop producers and ag professionals to turn to ICM News first for the latest research-based crop production information in Iowa," says Miller. Those who would like to register for daily or weekly e-mail updates can do so by going to: www.extension.iastate.edu/CropNews/Subscribe.htm.
