Training of growers, scouts, consultants, etc. in pest and natural enemy identification, scouting techniques, and IPM decision-making are priority areas of the Berry Crops extension program. We work with Plant Pathology, Horticulture, and Extension colleagues to deliver weekly pest reports and other information through grapes.msu.edu and blueberries.msu.edu.
Below are some basic Extension resources for fruit growers in Michigan. For more information go to the crop specific tabs under “Extension” or visit the MSU Fruit Extension website.
