Session Title: Pest Management Strategies for Hemp

Friday, July 9  4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Description:  Hemp has a limited number of approved pesticides, so many growers are looking to use beneficials like mites, insect, nematodes, and microbials to manage their pests. In this session, we will talk about combining beneficials and spray products to craft a solid pest management program.
