Fire Blight Webinar: Optimizing Biologicals and Biopesticides

October 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Using Weather & Environmental Conditions to Optimize Biologicals and Biopesticides for Bloom Protection


Join us to learn all the updates from our national research project on Fire Blight involving MI, NC, NY, CA, OR and WA. Sara Villani, Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology, will talk about how to use weather and environmental data to optimize timings of biologicals and biopesticide applications for an effective Fire Blight control.

This event is targeted towards growers, managers, researchers, and other industry professionals looking to keep up-to-date on Fire Blight and how to manage it effectively. The webinar will last approximately one hour and one pesticide update credit will be available with WSDA, ODA, NYS, and MDARD approval.


Thank you to funding support from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture Specialty Crop Initiative.
