IPM in Fruit and Vegetable Crops with major emphasis on blueberry pests
Our extension program provides pest management information to industry groups, growers, crop consultants and marketing representatives. We provide information on various small fruit crops including blueberry, strawberry, grape and blackberry. We also extend pest management information to organic growers. Currently, we conduct evaluations of registered and unregistered (new) insecticides and acaricides to determine the performance of these compounds on many agricultural crops (fruits and vegetables) and share this information with industry representatives.
