Protecting Peaches from Pests and Diseases [Facebook Live]

Mon, 04/12/2021

From borers to plum curculio, and from peach leaf curl to brown rot, growing peaches in New Hampshire has its challenges. Those insects and diseases don't even include all of the wildlife that seem to love peaches just as much as we do.

For over 30 years, George Hamilton has been helping fruit and vegetable producers and gardeners succeed against all the challenges growers in the Granite State face. George joins Nate Bernitz in this special live online event to share proven tips and solutions for preventing and managing pest and disease issues with peaches and nectarines, and to answer your questions. 

This event will be broadcast on the Ask UNH Extension Facebook Page. You do not need a Facebook account to watch, but being logged into an account gives you the opportunity to comment and ask questions during the event. No registration requested, simply mark your calendars!
