A March 23 workshop will address how biocontrols can fit into an integrated pest management plan to help in greenhouse growing operations.
“Biologicals are huge right now in greenhouse production and we’re seeing people introduce them and monitor them carefully for pests but at the same time aren’t quite sure where to take it from there,” said provincial horticulture specialist Dustin Morton.
The hands-on workshop will be held at Thiel’s Greenhouses in Bruderheim. Suzanne Wainwright-Evans of Buglady Consulting will look at methods of applying them, and how best to treat incoming plants and hot spots.
