  • Advancements in non-chemical control of intra-row weeds (video) 
    Margaret McCollough
    Margaret McCollough discusses her ongoing research to identify improved non-chemical management strategies for targeting weeds in the intra-row zone using cultural, physical, and preventative methods.
  • Better Common Names Project and Spongy Moth (video)
    Joe Rominiecki

    Juliet Carroll
    Hummingbirds require arthropods in their diet and may consume 2000 small insects per day when fledging young. In New York State, we investigated the use of feeders to attract Ruby-throated Hummingbirds into raspberry fields to encourage predation of spotted-wing Drosophila (SWD) with the goal of reducing fly populations and fruit infestation.
