Friend or Foe? How Distinguishing Pests Effectively Can Pay Dividends.


About This Episode

In a given field, orchard or vineyard, growers and consultants come into contact with an array of insects. But what isn’t quite clear every time is whether the insect that’s present is a pest, non-factor or beneficial. Getting identification right is the first and most imperative step to building out an effective insect management plan, though it can sometimes be overlooked. Listen in as Alix Whitener, technical service manager for FMC, joins Jake Turner to discuss a wide spectrum of pest identification subjects, from murder hornets to cases of mimics faking out growers to the downstream effects of incorrect pest identification.
