IPM

IPM
Grape growers benefit from implementing IPM - environmentally and economically sensible ways to protect crops from insects, plant diseases, weeds, and vertebrate pests.  We work with grape processors, growers, local extension educators, faculty, crop consultants, and agricultural businesses to find IPM answers, develop new IPM methods, and deliver IPM information.
 
NYS IPM Program Mission: The New York State Integrated Pest Management Program develops sustainable ways to manage pests and helps people to use methods that minimize environmental, health and economic risks.

Spotted Lanternfly Update

While there are currently no known infestations in New York State we continue to find spotted lanternfly (SLF) hitchhiking into New York State.  As you can see in the map below, SLF has been reported in 11 New York counties.  Because there are no know infestation our current management strategy is based on proper identification and reporting spottedlanternfly@dec.ny.gov.   The current life stage(s) to be vigilant for are egg masses (photo).  Spotted lanternfly appear to be willing to lay their eggs on any surface so it is important to be vigilant in inspecting anything coming out of the quarantined areas.  First instar nymphs will be emerging soon and can be identified by the white spots on their black bodies.

Virtual Coffee Pot Meetings every Wednesday

We are excited to offer Virtual Coffee Pot Meeting for NY and PA Pesticide Recertification Credits.

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture approved our Coffee Pot Meeting virtually (online) and, with some modifications. We have been approved to offer one NY and one PA credit for each Coffee Pot Meeting. That is 13 opportunities to receive pesticide recertification credits in 2020!

We will discuss timely viticulture, business management, and integrated pest management. We are also setting up special guest speakers in viticulture and enology from all over the country since traveling isn't an issue with the virtual platforms. We are excited to be able to continue to offer recertification credits for our growers and sad that it will not be in person or with coffee and doughnuts. 

Join us Wednesdays May through July, 2020 10:00 AM Eastern Time. Register in advance for this meeting:
