Progress report for ENE14-133 - Integrated pest management for greenhouse vegetable producers
Eshenaur, Brian C.; Lamb, Elizabeth M.
The objective of this project is to provide training for Extension educators in IPM that is tailored for the production system and specific pests in vegetable production under protected environments (greenhouses and high tunnels). The intent is that this will lead to an increase in the adoption of IPM by growers, with its potential to reduce pesticide use and improve product quality. Overall performance targets: 20 Extension educators will co-train with growers in greenhouse vegetable IPM to provide grower support; 10 will conduct educational programming for 150 growers; 8 will create an IPM plan with a grower then demonstrate it for 160 growers. Thirty growers will document an increase in IPM in their vegetable greenhouses.
