Publications \ Pest Reports \ Pest Reports 2019

The Pest Report is a compilation of short discussions of pests, diseases and practical growing considerations relevant to the time of year. These discussions have been written by Eric Sideman, myself, and sometimes other New England crop advisors. Discussions of pest and diseases include the biology of the organisms themselves, symptoms and effects on plants, and recommended management options. The report is sent by email to all of the MOFGA certified vegetable growers, and other growers who have requested it. You can also view the Pest Report online a day or two after the email is sent. I aim to keep discussions up to date with the most relevant information, and you can always help me do that by sending along pest and disease sightings, or new resources!
