Demonstration/Evaluation of IPM Protocols for Cucurbits
1. Set up five split-field demonstrations comparing current grower practices with the recommended IPM protocol in pumpkins, winter squash, summer squash, cucumbers, or melons. 2. Establish baseline information on grower insect and disease management practices in cucurbits. 3. Compare pest populations, pest management costs, and crop quality in the grower-managed and IPM-managed portions of the fields.
