Sep 28, 2010Pest management webinars
Learn more about pest management in season-extension production systems, such as high tunnels, by registering for a new webinar series sponsored by the Great Lakes Vegetable Working Group, University of Illinois Extension and a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Professional Development grant.
There will be five one- to two-hour webinars, produced on Nov. 1, 3, 8, 16 and 18. The first three webinars will focus on an introduction to pest management in various season extension systems, focusing on tomatoes and winter crops. The last two webinars will be geared toward soil, water and nutrient management, plus a summary of the Environmental Quality Incentives Program high tunnel pilot project initiated this year.
Pre-registration for this webinar series is mandatory and can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/s/season_ext. The cost for the series is $30, whether you attend one or all five webinars. Each webinar will be recorded and available on several state IPM or vegetable oriented websites for viewing soon after its original airdate.
