Vermont Vegetable and Berry Growers On-Farm Workshop
INSECT AND DISEASE IDENTIFICATION AND ORGANIC MANAGEMENT
Tuesday June 12, 2007 from 2-5 pm
River Berry Farm, Fairfax, VT

Join us as we scout for a variety of pests in vegetables, berrries and greenhouse crops on this 50-acre river bottom farm. We'll identify the insects and diseases we find, and discuss organic management options with experienced farmer David Marchant, along with Jon Turmel, entomologist with the VT Agency of Agriculture, and Ann Hazelrigg and Vern Grubinger from University of Vermont Extension.

David will demonstrate several different sprayers, large and small, that he uses to apply organic pest control materials, and we'll learn how to calibrate them.
