Issue No. 21, Article 1/August 12, 2005
Last In-Season Issue of the Bulletin
This issue of the Bulletin is the last in-season issue for 2005. We will publish monthly issues early in the months of September, October, November, and December, then resume in March 2006. Look for summaries of field research efforts in the remaining 2005 issues of the Bulletin, as well as announcements of educational events and materials. For those of you who access the Bulletin on the Web, you might be notified of new articles in between printed issues. These "Alert" articles enable us to discuss breaking news and important issues in pest and crop management when the need arises. For example, if the soybean aphid situation changes drastically during the next week, you can expect an article on the Web providing an update.
As always, we thank you for all of the input and feedback you have provided us this year. Your reports from the fields in your area are extremely valuable to us, and we hope to continue our two-way communication well into the future. As the summer of 2005 draws to a close, we will have the opportunity to review all of the input you have provided to help us develop meaningful, timely educational programs for the forthcoming fall and winter meetings. I'm certain we'll have another busy year of educational programs to review what happened during this most memorable growing season and to share what we learned about pests and crop development under extreme weather conditions.--Kevin Steffey
