Published: January 9,2011
Four Mississippi State University entomologists are among a group of Mid-South colleagues being honored for a continuing project to identify effective cotton pest management strategies.
Group members from MSU are Don Cook, Jeff Gore, Angus Catchot and Fred Musser. Cook and Gore are based at the Delta Research and Extension Center in Stoneville, and Catchot and Musser are on the Starkville campus at MSU.
The group received the “Friends of IPM ‘Pulling Together’” award from the Southern Region Integrated Pest Management Center at North Carolina State University. The award recognizes the success of groups working with integrated pest management, which is a combination of techniques and strategies to control agricultural pests.
The project for which they have been recognized involves entomologists from MSU, Louisiana State University, the University of Arkansas, the University of Missouri, the University of Tennessee and the Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
