Slug and vole survey

By Greg LaBarge, CCA, Ohio State University Extension
We have heard varying reports of crop injury including replanting, treatment with control products or tillage from slugs and vole in corn and soybeans across the state. To get a better feel for where and under what conditions these two pests have been active in 2017 and 2018, a short 6-question survey has been put together. The survey is intended for farmers or professionals. The survey will be available until Aug. 31 and should take less than 3 minutes. Please go to http://go.osu.edu/slugvole.

A summary of responses will be posted in an upcoming fall issue of the CORN newsletter. If you have any question please contact Greg LaBarge, labarge.1@osu.edu
