Advertisment

These workshops have been so successful
in the past that the majority of the industry is now using IPM.

The workshop is designed to assist
those growers wishing to implement an IPM program or to further develop
existing programs. As such, OMAFRA advisory staff will be available to discuss
growers’ programs or visit individual operations if necessary to review IPM
programs or discuss any problems that may be occurring.

The workshop is a hands-on exercise
in how to set up your IPM program, and includes presentations on IPM basics,
pest biology and identification, monitoring, biological control, disease IPM
and the “nuts and bolts” of getting started.

The cost is $50 ($47.17 plus $2.83
