Do you have pest problems with your Brassica crops? We can help. The Brassica Pest Collaborative (BPC) is a project funded by Northeast-SARE that brings together Extension educators and researchers from UMass, UConn, UNH and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County to collaborate on research and education to improve management of this suite of insect pests. Collectively, we are doing research to evaluate the efficacy of tactics like mulches, netting, and conservation biocontrol to combat multiple pests, reduce overall pest damage, and increase yield.

In many cases, people are looking to reduce the size of their lawn in favor of low-growing perennials that provide benefits to wildlife. Others are simply looking to fill their perennial borders with plantings that require few inputs and little labor. Whatever your reasons, many native plants make great groundcovers.
