2011 Hands-on tree fruit IPM update series

Discuss pest problems and management strategies at tree fruit workshops offered throughout northwest Michigan.

Please note the changes to meeting times!

Once again Michigan State University will host a series of hands-on IPM workshops to be held throughout northwest Michigan during the 2011 growing season. Growers are encouraged to bring examples of pests and damage found on the farm to the meetings for identification and discussion. Each week will characterize a different time in the season and distinct weather patterns, which in turn will present a unique set of pest problems and management strategies that will be discussed.

These meeting are free and do not require registration. Pesticide recertification credits and certified crop advisor continued education credits will be available. Feel free to attend the meetings at any location or time that is convenient for you!
