Fruit & Vegetable Magazine is featuring a new resource for growers this month.
In preparation for the 2008 growing season, disease management tables, covering
six of the top fruit and vegetable crops produced in Canada, have been
formulated. The tables – which cover apples, grapes, strawberries,
field tomatoes, sweet corn, and carrots – are published in the January
2008 print version of the magazine (pages 8 to 10) and/or on Fruit
& Vegetable Magazine’s website.
Each of the tables lists the
more important diseases affecting each of the featured fruit and
vegetable crops and the products registered to prevent and/or treat
This is a new venture for Fruit & Vegetable Magazine and, while every effort
has been made to list the most accurate and complete information, it’s
stressed that these tables are meant as a guide only. It is highly
recommended that growers refer to local provincial guides and product labels.
light of the constantly changing Canadian disease and pest management
industry, the 2008 Disease Management Guides are listed here. As
changes and additions are made to the registrations, the tables will be
updated to remain as current as possible.
It’s understood that
growers have more than diseases to worry about in their crops. Fruit
& Vegetable Magazine will also be featuring the insect side of the
growing equation in its February 2008 issue. Pest Management Guides for
apples, grapes, strawberries, field tomatoes, sweet corn, and carrots
will be published in both the print publication and online.
& Vegetable Magazine hopes to build on the Disease and Pest
Management Guides and provide tables for additional fruit and vegetable
crops over time. For more information or to suggest other crops to
cover, don’t hesitate to contact the magazine at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-888-599-2228, ext. 269.
