This event is part of a series of North Country Twilight Meetings.
This summer, UNH Extension is teaming up with four farms to host a series of twilight meetings. Whether you farm, aspire to farm, or just want to learn a few tips for managing your garden, this series could be for you. At each event, we will take on-site tours and dive deep into each topic. Come to one, or as many as you like. No pre-registration is required and all events are free. Pesticide applicator recertification credits are pending.
Events in this series:
- June 15 - Outsmart Your Weeds, Dalton, NH
- July 12 - Reduced Tillage as a Climate Adaptation Strategy, East Thetford, VT
- August 24 - CANCELED - Monitoring Corn Pests with Trapping, Northumberland, NH
- September 14 - Diagnosing Plant Diseases on the Farm, Bethlehem, NH
At the Monitoring Corn Pests with Trapping meeting, we will talk about the use of insect traps to monitor the presence/absence of common corn pests like corn earworm, European corn borer, and fall army worm. Monitoring allows for data-driven decisions about whether or not a pesticide is needed. We will discuss other vegetable pests and management tactics as well. Bring your questions.
