Feb. 6: Scouting Christmas Trees: Tools for IPM
Most growers of Christmas trees have to deal with pest problems. An integrated pest management approach (IPM) can make sure that you are using pesticides at the correct time and only when necessary.
Chloé Gendre of Club agroenvironnemental de L’Estrie of Quebec, will cover the various methods and tools growers can use in their pest management tool box. Heidi Lindberg from Michigan State Extension will cover the resources available for scouting and pest management.
