Growers are invited to expand their knowledge of Integrated Pest Management by attending an “ABCs of IPM” program in different cities in California throughout September.
The goal of the full-day program, organized by the California Ornamental Research Federation (CORF), is to encourage positive changes in growers’ IPM programs by reviewing or introducing critical pest management practices that they can incorporate into their operations. The program will take place at the San Diego County Farm Bureau in Escondido on Sept. 19, the UCCE Office in Ventura on Sept. 20, and the UCCE auditorium in Watsonville on Sept. 26. Each seminar will take place from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The program will cover all aspects of IPM in floriculture, including chemical, cultural, physical and biological controls. There also will be a discussion about monitoring.
