Southeast Strawberry Expo - Registration open

Registration is open for the Southeastern Strawberry Expo, which will be held in Durham, NC, November 8-10. I will have results from our organic trials this summer and will have a full session on insect and mite management. My main emphasis in this session will be to discuss with growers when NOT to treat insects and mites with pesticides. The decision not to spray is often the hardest, but we'll be discussing tools that can minimize the number of pesticide applications needed.
