Invitation to Contact Us

Recent retirements and resignations of educators within the University of Illinois Cooperative Extension Service, particularly in southern Illinois, have left a void in our network of "folks in the field." We specialists on campus have always relied on information regarding crop and pest conditions that these educators have provided us over the years. However, we also rely upon reports from those of you outside the Extension system who spend time scouting and troubleshooting in fields and who have your "ears to the ground." We need your input more than ever before if we are to stay current with pest activity and crop development throughout the state. Consequently, I invite you to call us or contact us by e-mail if you have anything to report. All authors can be reached by e-mail through our website, so don't hesitate to drop us a line even if it's after hours. Most of us check our e-mail messages frequently, so in this age of electronic communication, electronic reports could be most efficient.

Thanks in advance for any information you give us. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation and support.
