COVID-19 Resources for Farmers & Markets

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.

This session will address the key building blocks of an IPM approach to farm management, focusing on methods farmers can utilize in greenhouses and hoop houses, through the experience of Peace Tree Farm.

The webinar will consist of portions of two popular sessions Lloyd hosted at recent PASA Sustainable Agriculture Conferences, where he reviews techniques he feels are key to IPM success. Following the recorded portion of this webinar, you’ll participate in a live Q&A.

Check out other recordings from the Fundamentals of IPM series.

This webinar is being offered free of charge through support from a Specialty Crop Block Grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
