one of the natural enemies we show growers
how to identify at our winter workshops.
But our biggest outreach undertaking is a series of articles which will appear in the winter and spring issues of The Good Fruit Grower magazine. The first article due is out in the February 1 issue entitled, "Enhancing Biological Control - Overview of a five-year project" which gives (as the title suggests) a good overview of what we've accomplished and what we've learned so far as a result of this project. The second article, "Natural Enemy Inventory - Knowing what's in your orchard helps to stabilize your IPM program" will appear in the February 15th issue. Stay tuned - there are 6 more planned for the subsequent issues.
