On-Farm IPM Workshops: Qualicum

June 13, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am PDT

On-Farm IPM Workshops: Qualicum


Learn monitoring and management techniques for pests of fruit, vegetable, and berry crops.

Interested in improving pest management on your farm? This workshop will provide you with the knowledge to identify, monitor and manage insect pests, as well as recognize and attract beneficial insects.

We will start with learning some monitoring principals, and then will take a farm tour, looking at some different monitoring traps in action, and trying out some monitoring techniques. We will have a look at the pests that are currently active, and discuss management strategies that incorporate our monitoring results. We will also look for beneficial insects, and the features that attract them to a crop.

You will leave with a better understanding of how monitoring can fit into your farm practices, samples of some insect pests, and a resource list to help you continue to build an IPM strategy for your farm.

This workshop is open to both large and small scale farmers, and will focus on pests of berries, brassicas and carrots. Provided information will be applicable to organic and conventional growers. Please register so we know how many participants to expect.
