Insect Management

Insect management is a significant challenge to sustainable production of specialty crops like apples, potatoes and leafy greens. Concerns about the toxicity of many synthetic insecticides, increasing resistance of insects to available chemical controls, and the elimination of natural enemies to many crop pests has led to a significant changes in the way that insect management research is now conducted. CSANR has supported research on novel, biologically and ecologically-based insect management practices for both organic and integrated cropping systems.
