2013 Weekly IPM Updates
Date: July 10, 2013
Location: Northwest Michigan Horticultural Research Center
Many growers are probably wondering when the traditional weekly IPM updates will begin and where they will be held. Because we were not able to fill the IPM position prior to the start of the growing season, we have decided to hold the weekly IPM sessions on Wednesdays beginning May 8th through ~July 10th from 1 to 3 p.m. at one location – the NW Michigan Horticultural Research Center. We will have to discuss whether or not we will hold an update on July 1 as the NWMHRC will be open for Cherry Connection during this week of the National Cherry Festival.
The format will remain the same as in previous years. Commercial fruit growers are encouraged to bring examples of pests and damage found on the farm to the meetings for identification and discussion. Each week will characterize a different time in the season and distinct weather patterns, which in turn will present a unique set of pest problems and management strategies that will be discussed.
These meetings are free and do not require registration. Pesticide recertification credits and certified crop advisor continued education credits will be available.
