Pear IPM

 

As pear IPM becomes more challenging, growers and consultants have turned to WSU for help. In 2017 WSU-TFREC Beers lab and the DuPont Extension lab teamed up with area consultants to expand our efforts toward sustainable pear IPM. Funding support is provided by the Tree Fruit Research Commission and WSDA Specialty Crop grants. Check our What’s New section frequently for the latest updates on research you can use today.

Pear IPM Project

WSU Research and Extension Betsy Beers, Louis Nottingham, Tianna DuPont and Christopher Strohm in collaboration with many consultants in the area launched a renewed effort in pear IPM this spring. This project includes new research trials and extension efforts to find solutions to pear pest management challenges.
