  • Feb 9 and Feb 16: Basics of light, water fertility, media as they relate to pest management
  • Feb 23: Vegetable crop production in greenhouses and high tunnels
  • Mar 2: Disease management in greenhouses and high tunnels
  • Mar 9: Insect management in greenhouses and high tunnels
  • Mar 16: Weed management in greenhouses and high tunnels, especially in winter production
  • Mar 23: How to write/use an IPM plan
Zoom information for each webinar will be coming soon. All webinars will be recorded in case you canít attend in person.

During the week of April 24 Cornell will hold a training session in Geneva to follow up on these webinars.
