Jun 3, 2019Managing SWD in berries focus of June 5 Michigan event
Michigan State University Extension and Michigan Food and Farming Systems invite growers, field managers, pest consultants and everyone involved in insect pest management in blueberries, raspberries and strawberries to attend our first 2019 SWD IPM Workshop. The workshop will be offered on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center, 1791 Hillandale Rd., Benton Harbor, MI 49022.
The workshop is based on using advanced IPM tools to manage the SWD. These IPM tools translate directly to the bottom line; savings in pest control, fewer insecticide applications, and minimum crops losses due to SWD
The program will include a hands-on session dedicated to discussing a successful IPM program for SWD control using Enviroweather and MSU Extension resources provided during the classroom sessions. If you have a lap top computer or smart phone, please bring it with you for the hands-on session. At least one lap top will be available for those that may need one for the hands-on practice.
There is a $25 fee for this workshop that includes materials, lunch and refreshments. A registration link with workshop agenda will be provided soon.
There will be four RUP recertification credits for attending this training.
