Pear IPM Field Day

Join WSU Extension for a field day demonstration and research update Thursday July 19, 2018. Managing pear psylla and mites in the Wenatchee Valley and nearby areas has become increasingly difficult and costly.  Resistance is a constant issue and many products have only marginal effects on the pests.  Old strategies are less reliable and alternatives are gaining popularity.
