Description

This series of webinars will address the fundamentals of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), providing you with the information you need to start or enhance your IPM practices today.

IPM is a key approach for effectively managing and controlling weeds, pests, and disease on sustainable farms. By implementing IPM techniques, farmers can prevent problems before they happen and better control those that do.

During this webinar, we’ll review both common and some not-so-common diseases in the most important vegetable crops in the Northeast and Upper Mid-Atlantic: tomatoes, peppers, vine crops, and leafy greens. We’ll then discuss control strategies for these diseases using an IPM approach, including cultural practices and variety selection.

Finally, we’ll explore sustainable fungicide and bactericide programs considering application timing, using adjuvants to improve efficacy, application methods, and selecting materials to meet your market demands.

This webinar is being offered free of charge through support from a Specialty Crop Block Grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
