Greenhouse IPM with an Emphasis on Biocontrols

Cathy Thomas | 2005

This manual was designed by the Pennsylvania Integrated Pest Management Program to help greenhouse growers implement biological control and integrated pest management (IPM).

It begins with an introduction to IPM and its principles, information on starting an IPM/biocontrol program and using compatible pesticides, and then addresses many of the most common greenhouse pests and their biocontrols. The emphasis throughout is biocontrol.

This manual is designed to educate commercial greenhouse operators, crop consultants and IPM scouts.
