Abstract:

Despite significant production in New York State of both vegetable transplants and edible crops in greenhouses and high tunnels, there are limited resources describing integrated pest management (IPM) strategies available for edible crops in protected culture. This project is in the process of creating an IPM resource to assist extension resource educators and stakeholders. This resource will provide concise information on cultural management and sanitation practices, biological control options, and conventional and organic pesticides for disease, insect, and weed pests of edible plants and transplants grown in greenhouses and high tunnels.
