Subscribe to the Bulletin Using Our RSS Feed

Welcome to the newest version of the Pest Management and Crop Development Bulletin! We have made some changes that will hopefully allow our experts to get information to you as soon as it becomes available.

Because our authors will no longer be constrained to a single, weekly publishing date, we will no longer use our e-mail notification system, as we do not wish to send out a mass e-mail message every time a new article is posted.

Our e-mail notification system has been replaced with an RSS Feed. RSS stands for “really simple syndication” and it is a way to quickly and freely get information news items to readers across the Internet. If you are already experienced using a third-party RSS “feed reader” program, you can skip the rest of my explanation and simply click on our RSS link on the main page to add our feed to your list.

If you are new to RSS, the simplest way to get started is to bookmark our RSS link by right-clicking on it and storing the bookmark in your browser.

Just right-click on the RSS Feed link on our home page.

Once you have bookmarked the RSS Feed link, clicking on it will give you a listing of all current articles, showing the newest articles at the top of the list.

While this method is quick and easy and works well, the best experience will be had using a Feed Reader. There are all sorts of them available for free on the Internet, for Windows, or Mac, or even Linux. (The most popular had been Google Reader, which for whatever reason has recently been discontinued…)

For those interested in learning more about RSS Feeds and how to use them, the following articles may be useful:
