Thrips: The Threat To Specialty Crop Quality and Your Wallet


About This Episode

Scars on a lettuce leaf, an undersized onion bulb – these are the tell-tale signs of thrips damage. Now, these visual effects might not reduce yield or make the produce inedible, but they do influence the marketability of a crop and a grower’s profitability. Join Philip Northover, technical service manager for FMC, as he explores the effect thrips have on fruit and vegetable marketability, as well as IPM considerations, virus transmission due to thrips, weather factors and current research he and his team are conducting on thrips in strawberry and onion trials.
