Greenhouse 2 - Controlling Insects and Diseases in Retail Greenhouses - 3A, 3B, Comm CORE, Priv CORE

  • Date:Tuesday, December 8
  • Time:9:00 AM - 9:50 AM
  • Session Type:Breakout
  • Description:Long hours of operation, high density plant displays, and customer aversion to pesticides combine to make insect and disease control in retail settings challenging. The first line of defense is to develop scouting and exclusion strategies. Biological control agents can be a part of the plan in certain situations. When pesticides are needed, short re-entry intervals, low odor, bloom safety, and high efficacy are top priorities. Specific pest-by-pest recommendations will be presented.
