stickycardFruit & Vegetable Magazine is continuing its new resource for growers this month.

In preparation for the 2008 growing season, pest 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 February 2008 print version of the magazine (pages 11 to 13) and/or on Fruit & Vegetable Magazine’s website.

Each of the tables lists the more important pests affecting each of the featured fruit and vegetable crops and the products registered to prevent and/or eliminate that pest.

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.

In light of the constantly changing Canadian disease and pest management industry, the 2008 Pest Management Guides will also be listed at www.fruitandveggie.com. 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 pests to worry about in their crops. Fruit & Vegetable Magazine featured the disease side of the growing equation in its January 2008 issue. Disease Management Guides for apples, grapes, strawberries, field tomatoes, sweet corn, and carrots were published in the print publication and/or online.

Fruit & 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 mland@annexweb.com or 1-888-599-2228, ext. 269. ❦
