Pest Management in Greenhouse Production
Dr. Eric Rebek, Dept. of Entomology, Oklahoma State University
Greenhouses are perfect environments for plants and insects. Some of these insects are pests while others can be used as biological control agents to manage pest species. This webinar will focus on the most common greenhouse pests and biological control strategies to reduce pest pressure.
Green-Up 2020: Forecast for Turfgrasses and Pest Management
Dr. Clint Waltz, Dept. of Crop and Soil Science, University of Georgia
As the weather warms and turfgrasses transition to active growth, the impact of environmental conditions can affect green-up and pest management. This webinar will discuss how grasses and pests (i.e. diseases, weeds, and insects) have been influenced by weather patterns and how to best achieve turfgrass growth through the spring and into early summer.
