Managing Spotted-Wing Drosophila Threat in Small Fruits


About This Episode

If there was a competition for the most successful invasive pests, spotted-wing drosophila (SWD) would top the standings. Since its introduction to the U.S. more than a decade ago, SWD has spread coast to coast and changed the way and, even in some cases, the cultivars small fruit growers produce. Listen in as Alix Whitener, technical service manager, breaks down the keys to managing SWD, from cultural and conventional management practices to IPM considerations, and provides a glimpse at some of the latest university research being conducted.
