This Great Lakes Vegetable Working Group (GLVWG) project will serve as a focal point for team building to develop, improve, maintain and expand IPM practices in the NC region. The proposed project will: 1) facilitate communication and collaboration among members of the GLVWG members through continued use of the 158 member listserv and webpage; 2) coordinate and conduct an annual meeting to exchange programmatic an research information, build multi-state collaborations, and identify current priorities within the vegetable industry; 3) produce an on-line regional high tunnel vegetable crop disease and pest disorder guide that will assist vegetable growers with the implementation of successful pest management programs; and 4) develop and maintain an on-line GLVWG Twitter feed and a Facebook page that submits real time pest alerts and integrated pest management information to assist vegetable growers with timely implementation of successful pest management programs.
