Blog to post latest floriculture IPM news
By Dave Harrison
April 20, 2015, Vineland Station, Ont. – Floriculture growers have a new IPM tool.
“ONfloriculture” is a new blog making its debut this week. Leading the program is Dr. Sarah Jandricic, greenhouse floriculture IPM specialist with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA).
“The idea behind this blog is to pass important technical information onto growers and consultants as fast as possible,” she explains. “Some information will be Ontario-specific, but much of it will be pertinent to greenhouse floriculture IPM world-wide.
“Topics will include emerging pests, new strategies in insect and pathogen IPM, new product registrations/label expansions, and the latest in IPM research. The blog will also provide another way to promote industry events.”
