First strawberry preplant meeting - July 28th
The first strawberry preplant meeting of the season (is it that time already?!) will be next Thursday, July 28th at the Mountain Horticultural Research Station in Mills River, NC. Area horticulture agent, Sue Colucci has organized this meeting, and interested growers can find more details here. I will be sharing results from our 2010 twospotted spider mite trials, discussing new insecticide options and IPM strategies for sap beetles in strawberries, and sharing information on unusual caterpillar issues from this year's harvest season.
Hope to see the mountain strawberry growers there!
Sue Colucci has just posted an announcement for the meeting on her blog, Western NC Vegetable and Small Fruits News.
