OMAFRA’s new Vegetable Crop Protection Guide (publication 838) has just been published and is now available.
Many in Ontario’s field vegetable industry are familiar with the Vegetable Production Recommendations (publication 363), which is being discontinued. It is being replaced with this newly published Vegetable Crop Protection Guide and (soon to come) Publication 839, the Ontario Field Vegetable Guide (expected release March 2013).
Features of the new Vegetable Crop Protection Guide:
divided by crop, with updated tables listing pest control products for each crop
includes new activity tables summarizing activity of the products on key pests
includes an updated IPM chapter
