Integrated Pest and Crop Management TAg Teams in NWNY
Herendeen, Nathan R.; Stanyard, Michael J.
Tactical Agriculture Teams (TAg) have proven effective for teaching farmers and agri-business representative the principles of integrated pest management (IPM) as well as nutrient management and improved crop cultural practices. Two teams were effectively developed last season within the Mennonite community of farmers in Yates County. Because of the limited travel abilities of Mennonite growers, many growers outside of these TAg areas approached us about establishing teams closer to their proximity. Our efforts this year were aimed at expanding TAg Teams in that venue as well as across the NWNY area. In 2001, two additional Mennonite Teams were established in Yates County. One additional TAg Team was established in Seneca County.
