May is the busiest month for many farmers with fields full of crops, markets starting, and regular farm maintenance increasing.
One issue we will all face in the next several weeks is pest pressure. Weeds, insects, and disease are an increasing problem as we continue further into spring and summer. Many farmers have developed specialized tactics to combat these issues through their own exploration and on-farm research. We are conducting pest control research at Lomax Farm this year. Please read our expert tip to learn more about our new study and how to conduct your own on-farm research.
