Program Details: The Dos and Don'ts on Using Biologicals
Interested in Biologicals, WHY? This program will offer insights to understand how biologicals work; how they work best. Pests and pathogens, both above and below the ground, can be reliably controlled with biologicals. Timing, application, compatibility, storage will be discussed. You know what you are up against; today biologicals can and do work alongside chemicals and are a valuable tool to have in the IPM toolbox.
