IPM for Central WA Pear Orchards

Pear psylla and honeydew marking to fruit cause significant economic damage to pears in Washington, a key pear growing region of the United States. The goal of this project is to compare an integrated pest management (IPM) program using materials which selectively target pests and relies on large natural enemy populations to grower standard conventional and organic pear pest management.
