This fact sheet explains Integrated pest management (IPM) as a sustainable approach to managing pests. It discusses the steps a grower should take to implement an IPM program. URLs to additional references are imbedded throughout the publication to provide additional information. Disease management is covered in one section, with references to fact sheets about specific diseases of grapes. Insect management is broadly addressed with fact sheet links for common insect pests of grapes. A spray schedule is included in the form of a table. Pesticide safety is addressed.
This is a good usable extension publication. It will help growers and non-commercial growers organize their IPM approach to solving specific production problems. The authors did a good job of summarizing information in a clientele user-friendly format. The publication is a little wordy and could benefit from some editing; however, it does a good job of hitting the main points. The table of recommended controls summarizes efficacy and resistance. The sample spray schedule will be helpful to new growers. Online references to additional fact sheets and organic references are included.
