And some also are finding they don’t always get the amount of product they think they’re paying for.

Roger Leonard, research entomologist with the Macon Ridge Experiment station in Winnsboro, La., talked about those and other issues in this interview following his speech at Cotton Incorporated’s Crop Management Seminar in Memphis, Tenn.
