Michigan States University Extension has publications that can guide you to minimize the risk of yield loss due to diseases, weeds and insect pests. Among these publications, the most recent updated version of the “Weed Control Guide for Vegetable Crops;” “Insect, Disease and Nematode Control for Commercial Vegetables;” “Weed Control Guide for Field Crops;” and the “Fruit Management Guide,” among others, are now available.

Often, local MSU Extension offices do not order bulletins that are not in high demand, so before you head to your local Extension office to purchase a bulletin, give the office a call to confirm they have copies available or just use the online store.

Whether you are a regular or a new user of MSU Extension publications, the easiest way to obtain bulletins is through the MSU Extension Bookstore online. The MSU Extension Bookstore has become part of MSU’s online store

A link to the MSU Extension Bookstore can be found on the top right corner of the website.
