Greenhouse Pesticide Resistance Webinars

A Webinar Series for Pesticide Resistance Management in Greenhouses

This project was initiated because in greenhouses, pesticide resistance can lead to over-use of pesticides, as well as a reduction in yields and crop quality due to poor pest control. The topic of resistance management can be complex; we hope this interactive webinar series will help provide the information greenhouse growers can use to manage pesticide resistance.
