Programs for Nursery Crops
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a science-based method to manage agricultural plant pests, which include arthropods (insects and mites), pathogens (fungi, bacteria, nematodes, and viruses), and weeds that can injure or kill plants. These plant pests may reduce the quality and value of horticultural crops in wholesale and retail nurseries and garden centers, and they can also injure ornamental plants in managed landscapes of residential and commercial properties.
The UConn IPM Program for Nursery Crops offers full-season hands-on training for wholesale and retail commercial nurseries and garden centers. Information on key horticultural pests of woody trees and shrubs, as well as general information on IPM practices and solutions such as scouting for pests, pest identification, record keeping, and control options, can be found on these web pages and via links to other resources.
