Do You Need Neonicotinoid Treated Seed? (March 2019)

Featuring John Tooker, Penn State Associate Professor of Entomology, this podcast focuses upon the explosion of neonicotinoid-treated seed use and its unintended consequences: “The more insecticide you use, the fewer predators will be around and there is this kind of weird feedback – if you have fewer predators around, you will likely need more insecticides.” Potential problems include increased slug damage to crops due to impacts on slug predators.
