Cornell to host greenhouse, high tunnel IPM webinars

Cornell University’s New York State Integrated Pest Management program will host a series of short webinars on Greenhouse/High Tunnel Vegetable IPM on Thursdays from noon to 1 p.m. in February and March.  The intent is for each topic to be briefly covered and then followed by discussion:

  • Feb 2: Introduction to the project
  • Feb 9 and Feb 16: Basics of light, water fertility, media as they relate to pest management
  • Feb 23: Vegetable crop production in greenhouses and high tunnels
  • Mar 2: Disease management in greenhouses and high tunnels
  • Mar 9: Insect management in greenhouses and high tunnels
  • Mar 16: Weed management in greenhouses and high tunnels, especially in winter production
  • Mar 23: How to write/use an IPM plan

Zoom information for each webinar will be coming soon.  All webinars will be recorded.

During the week of April 24 we will hold a training session in Geneva to follow up on these webinars. More information on that session to follow.
