Description

The many treatments required to control insects and diseases in berry crops can limit the use of integrated pest management (IPM). The aim of this project was to produce a poster with information to help producers and extension agents choose pest and disease control strategies that promote the use of IPM.

Objective(s)

  • Create a poster to help producers and extension agents choose pest and disease control strategies
  • Summarize information on the efficacy of pesticides against pests and diseases and their potential negative impacts on natural enemies in three crops (strawberries, raspberries, and highbush blueberries)
  • Set up a committee of experts to validate the information collected
