Integrated Pest Management Update

Pests are a perennial problem in the nursery and their proper identification and effective control are essential to best production practices. The University of Florida/IFAS extension is bringing you a great program on the latest and greatest from research and industry to help you in your combating pest at the production level.

We will be having our annual Integrated Pest Management Update in Balm at the Gulf Coast Research and Education Center. The session will be half a day and will cover topics in the following areas:

  • how to effectively scout your production area
  • two economically important weeds
  • weed management
  • industry updates from our sponsors
  • shipping plants to and from Texas
  • chilli thrips management
  • banker plants
  • biorational pesticides

This is a really good line up and you should take away some good information to put to immediate use at the nursery. The cost is $25.00 and will cover refreshments, materials, CEU's for FNGLA, ISA, and FDACS pesticide licenses.
