Whitefly Update with Dr. Lance Osborne

I have seen a few more whitefly infestations around greenhouses late last year and early this year and some of them have been the more resistant Q-biotype.  I thought I would let you know about this opportunity being offered in Manatee County from Commercial Horticulture Agent Martha Glenn.  You can also gain a few Core CEUs.  If you have any questions follow the link below.

Whiteflies feed on more than five hundred species of host plants. If proper management steps are taken, a healthy landscape can be maintained. There are a number of cultural, biological and pesticide strategies that can be effective to help manage whiteflies.
