Please join us for the first webinar of our six-week risk management series on Thursday, 11/17 from noon to 3 p.m. Register here:

Integrated pest management, or IPM, is both a way of thinking and a way of acting in regard to pests. Farmers who practice IPM strive to prevent damage from pests and/or to manage them in ways that reduce risks to the environment and human health. Betsy Lamb from NYS IPM Program will talk about common pests of cut flowers and different options for controlling them. Fran Parrish, owner of Heirloom Soul Florals in Lockport, NY will discuss how she has grown a thriving flower farm and design business using regenerative, holistic practices.

This webinar is part of a six-week production risk management series for cut flower growers of all experience levels. In each session, an extension specialist will present best practices and new innovations. After a short break, a seasoned flower farmer or industry professional will share real life experiences and advice.
