Promoting Beneficial Insects in Vineyards for Conservation Biological Control
Watch this webinar to learn about ecological (natural) pest management in vineyards.
Vineyards are a rapidly expanding specialty crop industry across the U.S., and they represent an easy entry point for the adoption of conservation biological control (natural or ecological pest management). In this webinar, learn about the needs of beneficial insects that provide conservation biological control and how conservation practices such as flowering cover crops, insectary strips, flowering field borders and more that can sustain natural pest management.
This webinar was presented in partnership with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) – Science and Technology National Technology Support Centers.
