Use of Reflective Mulch to Reduce Thrips Populations in Field-Grown Cut Flowers
Casey, Christine; Yannone, Linda M.E.
Production of field-grown cut flowers represents an expanding area of agricultural production. It is often undertaken by fruit or vegetable growers as a way to expand and diversify their businesses, and is also used by individuals looking for a way to start a new business. The objective of this project is to demonstrate the use of reflective mulch as a method to reduce thrips populations in field-grown cut flowers.
