Our project held a 2-Day interactive workshop covering concepts such as: general principles of orchard biological control; understanding and solving problems with secondary pest outbreaks; how biocontrol tactics fit with IPM straegies, identification, monitoring and phenology of key natural enemies; and how pesticides effect biocontrol. Participants got the chance to interact directly with experts during open discussions and exercises.The results of surveys conducted during the workshop indicated that participants learned a great deal of useful information.
Although focused on temporate orchrds systems, the information presented in the Short Course is helpful and relevant to most perennial cropping systems.
