19 May 2017

Fruit flies are one of the most serious pests in horticulture. They can breed rapidly, disperse widely and successfully infest most fruiting vegetables. The larvae not only destroy infested fruit, but are a major quarantine issue for both domestic and international markets.

A series of five videos and an accompanying handbook have been produced, Fruit fly management for vegetable growers. The resources outline the strategies available to growers to manage fruit fly in vegetable crops, including the fruit fly lifecycle, monitoring, use of protein baiting, male annihilation techniques and netting. 

This webinar will provide an interactive overview of these resources, and the chance to interact with lead research Jenny Ekman from AHR.

Date: Friday 19 May 2017 (please note change of date)
