A webinar series and interactive grower outreach for pesticide resistance management in greenhouses
Eshenaur, Brian; Lamb, Elizabeth
Through an interactive webinar series and accompanying online materials, this project is reaching growers and extension educators with resistance management IPM techniques. To ensure the relevance and usefulness of the information, we have worked with NY growers to evaluate their understanding of pesticide resistance and to develop IPM based plans for resistance management to train other growers in New York State, EPA Region 2 and beyond in IPM methods for pesticide resistance management. The anticipated outcomes include a reduction in pesticide exposure and the reduction in potential release of pesticides to the environment through a reduction in pesticide use.
