MSU expanding web resources for vegetable production
Editor’s note: This article is from the archives of the MSU Crop Advisory Team Alerts. Check the label of any pesticide referenced to ensure your use is included.
The crops are growing and so are the web resources we are offering at MSU for vegetable production. Here are some sites to check if you haven’t visited our webs recently. The MSU Vegetable Area of Expertise Team has collaborated with the MSU IPM Program on many of these sites.
IPM Resources page for vegetables. Includes direct links to seasonal IPM advice, the Enviro-weather web site, MSU Diagnostic Services, the Soil/Plant nutrient lab, cover crops advice and the regional web site, VegEdge.
VegInfo search helps locate bulletins, Expo presentations, crop protection labels and other resources for vegetable growers and consultants.
Vegetable CAT Alert home page. Search previous 5 years of CAT Alerts using a keyword search. Sign up to get an email announcement when new issues are posted at the web site.
Enviro-weather is a new and expanding site offering Michigan weather data for making IPM and other production management decisions. MSU has plans to expand the pest models at this site and add additional weather stations. Visit the home page, click on the station nearest you, to quickly access degree day totals, precipitation totals and wetting events. The site links to the potato late blight monitoring site and offers links to the IPM Resources web for your reference when making pest management decisions.
