    Understand Cycles of Pests and Diseases and Their Interaction with the Environment"

    9:00 am - 3:15 pmUSDA Vegetable Laboratory & Clemson Coastal Research & Education Center, 2700 Savannah Highway, Charleston, SC 29414

    For farmers, successful use of cultural disease and insect pest management methods to prevent and/or avoid problems before they occur depends on an understanding of pathogen and pest life cycles and also how their development may be affected by weather conditions.  In this workshop, vegetable disease and insect pest management experts will discuss life cycles of key disease pathogens and insect pests affecting vegetables both above and below-ground. They will also explain how growers may use this information to implement certain cultural management practices that help to prevent or avoid disease and pest problems, and how changes in weather can affect disease and pest development. The workshop will conclude with a session on selection and application of organic insecticides for use in vegetables.

    The cost to attend this workshop is $15 which will offset supplies and lunch costs.
