Biopesticides and Integrated Pest Management Resources


Spotted wing drosophila (SWD), Drosophila suzukii, is an invasive pest that causes major economic loss to fruit and berry crops across the U.S. An educational webinar developed by Marrone Bio Innovations, in association with Informa’s Crops and Chemicals USA, provides practical integrated pest management tactics that can be used to control this invasive pest to protect your fruit crops in both conventional and organic production.

This recently recorded SWD webinar is led by Dr. Tim Johnson, Marrone Bio Innovation’s Product Development Manager, and includes presentations from other professionals in the field of Entomology.

They include:
• Dr. Hannah Burrack, Associate Professor of Entomology and Extension Specialist, North Carolina State University
• Dr. Cesar Rodriguez-Saona, Associate Extension Specialist in Entomology, Rutgers University
• Dr. Richard Cowles, Agricultural Scientist, Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station

Listen to what was shared and learn about SWD and IPM best practices.
