IPM is a key approach for effectively managing and controlling weeds, pests, and disease on sustainable farms. By implementing IPM techniques, farmers can prevent problems before they happen and better control those that do.
Just because the rush of June and July are behind us doesn’t mean that pest problems are over for the season! Take IPM principles and tools into the field to support healthy, productive crops through the rest of the summer, fall, and even winter. Join Cornell Cooperative Extension Vegetable IPM Coordinator Abby Seaman to learn how IPM in the field can prevent headaches and improve your farm’s profitability. Topics discussed will include common field pests and how pest cycles interact with crop timing and weeds.
This webinar is being offered free of charge through support from a Specialty Crop Block Grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
Abby Seaman, Senior Extension Associate, Cornell University: Abby promotes and supports the adoption and use of IPM practices among conventional and organic vegetable farmers through a combination of applied research, demonstration projects, educational programs, and networking in collaboration with colleagues at Cornell throughout the Northeast and beyond.
