Mitigating Insect Management Effects on Pollinators (Recorded Presentation)

by Scott Stewart, University of Tennessee

The Plant Management Network has released another online presentation in their “Focus on Cotton” series. This new 10 minute video offers suggestions on the steps that growers, pesticide applicators, and beekeepers can take to reduce any negative effects of pesticide applications on honey bees and other pollinators. Click on the link below to watch this presentation narrated by Scott Stewart.


Tomato Chlorosis Virus & Tomato Infectious Chlorosis Virus

This presentation will help consultants, growers, and other practitioners in the Southern and Western Regions of the US, as well as Mexico and the Caribbean identify and manage Tomato infectious chlorosis virus (TICV) and Tomato chlorosis virus (ToCV) in tomato. Information will directly benefit crop consultants, growers, and other practitioners responsible for fresh market tomato production under both field and greenhouse conditions. The presentation addresses virus symptoms, distribution, transmission by whitefly vectors, approaches for virus identification and differentiating viruses from one another, as well as specific issues affecting management. By the end of the presentation the practitioner should know more about how to identify potentially infected plants, alternative host plants that may support infection and become sources for transmission, and whitefly vectors responsible for transmission. This information should allow the practitioner to improve management and limit infection.
