What’s it all about:
The Tri-state Greenhouse IPM Program is a collaboration among growers and specialists from ME, NH and VT. We will be holding a virtual workshop once again for everyone’s safety with hopes to return to in-person in 2023. This year’s virtual workshop program will be a two-part online (Zoom) session with a primary focus on IPM below the soil surface. We are very excited to have two fantastic guest speakers lined up for this event!
Raymond A. Cloyd, a Professor and the Extension Specialist in Horticultural Entomology/Plant Protection, at Kansas State University will lead Session 1. He will discuss belowground biological control agents and then cover new insecticides and miticides for greenhouse production systems.
Rose Buitenhuis, a Research Scientist in Biological Control at Vineland Research and Innovation Centre, Ontario Canada will lead Session 2. She will discuss how to check the quality of your biocontrol agents and then demo how to use biological ‘dips’ to get rid of pests on cuttings
There are some new faces this year on our team from UVM, UNH, UMaine and the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry will cover research and issues to look out for in the tri-state region. These workshops are for growers with greenhouses or high tunnels, extension specialists and professional pest managers. Growers of all experience levels and from any state are welcome to attend. Preregistration is required and will be available in early December. Spots will be limited! We are expecting up to 4 pesticide applicator recertification credits. Anyone from any state is welcome to attend, but states accepting reciprocal credits for VT sponsored courses are ME, NH, MA, CT and RI.
Must be in attendance and actively participate to receive credits. $50.00 gets you signed up for BOTH sessions. Please contact Cheryl Frank Sullivan at email@example.com for questions.
