Growers now have access to the latest insights on sustainable pesticide usage and effective phytotoxicity management within the context of production nurseries with two webinars now available to view.
The one-hour webinars were recently hosted online by Dr Andrew Manners from the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF), and are now available on the Nursery and Garden Industry Australia (NGIA) YouTube channel.
Webinar 1: Pesticide selection for resistance management
This webinar discusses how pesticide resistance occurs, as well as the basic physiology related to pesticide resistance. Pesticide resistance management helps minimise the risk of resistance developing and includes practical recommendations from a production nursery perspective.
The webinar also covers how to choose pesticides within this framework and assist growers in putting together a pesticide plan for pest groups. More
