Weekly High Plains IPM "Radio" Podcast text alert signup!

For the past few weeks, the Texas High Plains IPM Team has experimented with a weekly radio style podcast where we discuss the issues in our areas.  This includes updates from me, Blayne Reed EA-IPM Hale & Swisher, Kerry Siders EA-IPM Hockley, Cochran, & Lamb, John Thobe EA-IPM Palmer, Bailey, & Castro, Dagan Teague EA-IPM Floyd & Crosby, with Dr. Pat Porter, district entomologist, and when available Dr. Suhas Vyavhare, district cotton entomologist. 

So far our early recordings have only been available by provided link.  These have been a huge success and we are moving forward.  This week we are offering a text alert sign up for the weekly IPM podcast.  So, if you would like a text alert made to your phone weekly with a link to the IPM discussion, the time to sign up is now!
