Title: The Integrated Pest Management Program Summary for Muck Vegetable Crops, 2015
Author: Van Dyk, D.; McDonald, Mary Ruth
Abstract: An Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program is provided to growers in the Holland/Bradford Marsh, Ontario, by the Muck Crops Research Station (MCRS). This project was funded in part through Growing Forward 2 (GF2), a federal-provincial-territorial initiative. The Agricultural Adaptation Council assists in the delivery of GF2 in Ontario. Funding was also provided in part by the Bradford Cooperative Storage Ltd., agrochemical companies, and growers participating in the Muck Crops Research Station IPM program. The main objectives of the project are: to scout growers' fields for diseases, weeds, and insect pests, to provide growers with disease and insect forecasting information, to identify and diagnose diseases, insect pests and weeds, and to implement roto-rod spore traps to trap and analyze spores of various vegetable crop pathogens.
