The monthly discussion group is free to join and is open to any growers farming or marketing fresh produce. This month’s program will be focused on insect management. What are some of the main pests, and what is the best way to deal with them? Learn how to develop a proactive, integrated pest management approach and bring all your questions about spray effectiveness, beneficials, scouting, and more.
The discussion group is made up of new/beginning farmers as well as experienced grower-mentors located in Allegany and Cattaraugus Counties. This group is free to join, open to new members, and meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.
