On-Farm Workshop Scouting & Forecasting: Proactive Pest Prevention in Vegetables

July 29, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Spot and manage pests before they have a chance to take over your vegetable crop.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Monitoring pest populations is fundamental to any Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system. Learn how to identify pests early in their life cycle, track regional population trends, and understand the environmental indicators that can lead to infestation so you can take a proactive approach to protecting your fields.

Join us at Braddock Farms to learn about these preventative IPM principles for vegetable farms, as well as how to select appropriate intervention actions.

Topics covered include:

  • Pest scouting
  • Pest forecasting
  • Record keeping
  • Selecting appropriate pest controls

Speakers

  • Nick Lubecki, Grow Pittsburgh
  • Sandy Feather, Penn State Extension
  • Dan Dalton, Pasa Sustainable Agriculture
