Fruit and Vegetable Magazine is continuing this month with the resurrection of a resource for growers from the past.
In preparation for the 2013 growing season, pest management tables covering Canada’s top fruit and vegetable crops – apples, blueberries, strawberries, wine grapes, beans, carrots, peas and sweet corn – have been formulated for publication in the March 2013 issue and/or at Fruit and Vegetable Magazine’s online home: www.agannex.com.
In the January/February 2013 issue, disease guides were featured. They are currently available online.
This marks the return of a resource Fruit and Vegetable Magazine first provided in 2008. 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.
In light of the constantly changing landscape of the Canadian disease and pest management industry, including the introduction of new grower resources, the 2013 Disease and Pest Management Guides will also be listed on www.agannex.com. As changes and additions are made to chemical registrations, the tables will be updated to remain as current as possible.
Fruit and 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 at 1-888-599-2228, ext. 269.
