IPM Education of Garden Center Employees and Clients
We will be offering a workshop to familiarize garden center employees to IPM practices. Common pests in vegetables and ornamentals will be presented along with alternative control measures. In order to get consumers to use IPM methods and reduced risk products, I feel that we need the cooperation of garden centers in Cattaraugus and Allegany Counties. In addition to encouraging businesses to carry IPM products, I hope to depict Cornell Cooperative Extension as a resource for themselves and their customers.
