Reuwai will discuss how she makes pest management decisions based on the information provided by the Rutgers IPM program and Kris will highlight practices to manage common vegetable pests in organic systems. IPM can be used in any type of production and is based on pest monitoring, mapping, and decision making based on pest population thresholds.
