With all the snow and cold weather it’s hard to believe that it’s March already and Spring is right around the corner! It’s time to start planning your pest management programs.
For the first time, we are hosting an all-day “Grape IPM School”. The aim of this “school” is to introduce and update wine grape growers of all experience levels to the key pest issues they face. We will discuss the basics of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and how to apply it to your vineyard. We have invited regional experts who will share their expertise on how to use IPM to scout for and manage grape berry moth, grape root borer, plant viruses and diseases, among others.
Please join us at the Rutgers Agricultural Research and Extension Center (RAREC), 121 Northville Rd., Bridgeton on MARCH 31st. Mark your calendars, more details to follow….
