This event is part of the Fruit IPM for the Home Garden and Landscapes Conference. 

Fruit is susceptible to a plethora of insect, disease, wildlife, and weed pests. In this presentation, we’ll review IPM concepts and tactics, and how they apply to fruit. We’ll then explore a few examples of pests and how IPM can be used in landscapes and home gardens to manage them effectively.
