Program Description

In the next decade, growers will have to face many challenges including scrutiny from individuals who don’t approve of pesticides, pesticide resistance in our pests, regulatory pests where even a single pest on a tree can cause an issue, and changes in weather patterns from climate change. This program is designed to get growers to think about how IPM principles can address these issues.

There are 6 sections to this program: Introduction, What does an IPM farm look like?, Cultural practices, Scouting, Pesticides and application, and Pulling it together – with scales as an example.

Emphasis will be on group discussion. There will be an accompanying notebook of pest control information.

This class offers 2 hours of pesticide credit in L N O D X
