Saturday I – 8:30 a.m.
Organic tree fruit farmers in the Upper Midwest face dozens of potential insect and disease pests. Fortunately many of the insect pests are managed through natural biological control once organic management practices are established. This workshop will focus on common organic management strategies for the key diseases and insect pests that escape biological control and discuss the resources and help available to organic tree fruit producers.
