Beckman, Jennifer; Miller, Jeff; Deming, Anita; Wise, Ken
The Tactical Agriculture (TAg) program is an experiential, hands-on training program designed to teach integrated pest and crop management concepts to field crop producers and other agribusiness personnel. The TAg project has been active in New York State since 1990. The TAg program teaches field crop producers to better manage field crops, protect the environment and reduce health risks associated with production agriculture. Participants are actively engaged in a growing-season-long educational program, that discusses critical pest and crop management issues that arise during the growing season and reinforces the learning experience with the timely collection of data from their fields during the growing season.
