Since the beginnings of the land-grant system, publications have been one of the most important ways to get research-based educational material to the public. These publications have included one-page fact sheets, brochures, educational materials, documents and even books. Most of our publications are available online, hardcopy or both. Viewers can download documents from our Website or simply read them online.

Louisiana Agriculture Magazine, Spring 2018
This issue focuses on one of today’s most important topics: globalization. Louisiana agriculture reaches around the world not only through trade, but in many other ways as well.
Yellow Sugarcane Aphid
The yellow sugarcane aphid (YSA) is a pest of sugarcane in Louisiana, Florida, the Caribbean, Central America and South America. Infestations of sugarcane in Louisiana typically occur in the spring. YSA populations usually decline naturally by midsummer. Heavy rainfall and natural enemies, which include ladybeetles, can suppress infestations.
Armyworms in Hayfields and Pastures
Two species of armyworms routinely infest forage and pasture production fields in Louisiana. Both species of these pests belong to the Noctuidae family of insects along with other agronomic pests, such as the cotton bollworm, soybean looper and tobacco budworm.
