That’s why our technicians are ready to sit down with you, roll up their sleeves, and help you think through how to keep pests and weeds away from your crops , livestock, and habitat. We can help you make smart choices about crops, pesticide and herbicide use, and other techniques. We can point you towards cost-share and technical assistance, including creating an integrated pest management plan. Our assistance is 100% free and confidential. We aren’t selling anything.
