Welcome to the First 1999 Issue of the Bulletin

March 22, 1999

The weather has warmed up recently, and most of us in agriculture are excited about the forthcoming growing season. Who knows what this year will bring? Whatever happens, it’s bound to be different!


As usual, those of us who write articles for this Bulletin intend to keep you up to date with insect, weed, and plant disease problems as they develop and to offer objective suggestions for managing those problems, both before and after they occur. Our overriding goal is to give you the best information possible to allow you to make informed decisions for yourselves and your customers. Using our own observations and reports we receive, we try to be as current as possible about pest problems and crop conditions. Therefore, we rely on your input, and we invite your comments. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you observe something you think others might benefit from knowing.


On behalf of all authors who contribute to this Bulletin, I thank you for your continued support of our efforts and wish you a successful year. We look forward to interacting with you and offering the best advice we can muster.–KS
