Scouting Preparation for 2004 Season

December 4, 2003

The much anticipated fifth edition of our popular Field Crop Scouting Manual X880d is nearly here! University of Illinois Extension specialists and educators and our ITCS publishing staff have been hard at work this past season revising the manual. You can expect the new edition to be ready for purchase early in 2004. The new edition has 30% more full-color photographs than the previous edition and contains more than 230 pages. Each chapter has been revised and updated to give you the most current information on scouting for significant pests in Illinois and the Midwest.

For more information about the new Field Crop Scouting Manual X880d, contact ITCS at (800)345-6087 or online at, after January 15.--Suzanne Bissonnette
