New Technology and Pesticides for Flower Crops
Welcome to the American Floral Endowment's Grow Pro Webinar Series! Throughout this series, our nationally recognized researchers, hosts, and speakers will offer ‘how-to’ advice based on AFE-funded and other research projects to help the industry navigate through these ever-changing growing challenges. The webinar topics are current and offer long-term opportunities for growers to focus on increased profit, greater sustainability, and improved labor efficiency. Each session includes a presentation and interactive Q&A. To see the full series calendar visit endowment.org/GrowPro.

The September 27th session of our series focuses on new technology and pesticides for flower crops.

Effective insect control requires the use of the proper insecticides for each pest and the rotation of pesticides to avoid development of resistance to the insecticides. Proper pesticide rotation requires and understanding of the ‘mode of action’ of each pesticide. Insecticides function in different ways to kill insects so rotation programs must select insecticides that work differently than the one being used prior to rotation. Dr. Chong will explain how to select and develop effective insect control programs

Topics Include:
• The differences in classification of insecticides
• Explaining why insecticides have different classifications
• Sources for the classification of insecticides
• How a grower knows when it is time to rotate insecticides

Speaker: Dr. JC Chong, Clemson University
