Speaker: Dr. Luisa Santamaria
This presentation will provide an update on the current biological products available for managing pests and diseases in nurseries and greenhouses. Participants will learn about the types of beneficial organisms and insects used in greenhouse production and relevant aspects to consider when using biological control. They will also learn about the use of biological control as part of a total integrated pest management (IPM) program, which incorporates scouting, disease-resistant plants, and good cultural practices. The instructor will provide some case studies where biological control has been successfully implemented.
