Sweet corn IPM Workshop for Great Lakes Expo (2008) & DVD

For the second year in a row, we developed an IPM workshop for the 2008 Great Lakes Fruit and Vegetable Exposition in Michigan. The 2008 workshop will be held in December, and is focused on sweet corn. Members of the GLVWG gave six of the nine presentations. In addition to the live presentations, we created 1,000 DVD’s and an online version of the sweet corn IPM workshop presentations to be distributed free to growers and IPM Coordinators around the region.

The following sweet corn IPM presentations were made at the 2008 Great Lakes Expo.  You can watch them online or request a copy of the DVD from Jim Jasinski while supplies last.
