Webinar Series: Managing Brassica Insect Pests

Brassica crops are not only an essential part of most farms' offerings, they are also on the menu for a whole suite of pests. Whether it's caterpillars, flea beetles, cabbage aphids or cabbage maggots, we're reviewing strategies for managing the most important insect pests - including an update of recent research efforts. If you'd like to learn more, join the Brassica Pest Collaborative’s series of online workshops on managing insect pests of brassicas!
