Indiana CCA Conference 2020 Presentation

Neonicotinoid seed treatments have been a part of US field crops production for almost 20 years. This presentation will highlight research into what we know about the pro’s and con’s of this approach, including how/where seed treatments are most efficacious in preserving yield and whether concerns of non-target impacts are relevant.

Christian Krupke conducts research and extension programs focus on quantifying both the agronomic and economic benefits and unintended negative consequences of pest management, particularly neonicotinoids and Bt crops. He advocates for IPM as way to solve pest problems while preserving yield and protecting the wider environment.
