Fruit and Vegetable Magazine is continuing its annual resource for growers this month.

Advertisment

In preparation for the 2009 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 (page 9 to 11)
and/or on Fruit and 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 the continuation of a venture started by Fruit and Vegetable
Magazine in 2008 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 2009 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 and Vegetable Magazine featured the disease side of
the growing equation in its January 2009 issue. Disease Management
Guides for apples, grapes, strawberries, field tomatoes, sweet corn,
and carrots were published in both the print publication and online.

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