The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) encourages pesticide applicators, farmers, and agricultural professionals to register for an upcoming webinar “Chlorpyrifos use in Minnesota” on April 8, 2020 at 12:00 CST.
This webinar will provide information on proper use of chlorpyrifos, soybean aphid control, and pyrethroid-resistant soybean aphids to help you better manage soybean aphids.
Chlorpyrifos is an organophosphate insecticide commonly used on a variety of crops in the state of Minnesota. With development of pyrethroid resistance in some soybean aphid populations, the use of chlorpyrifos has increased in recent years.
Since 2010, detections of chlorpyrifos in surface water in Minnesota have also increased. In 2017, the MDA detected chlorpyrifos 19 times in surface water.
