Christmas Tree IPM Practices - Survey 2007
Project Leaders: G. Couch, E. Lamb, B. Eshenaur, NYS IPM
Abstract: A survey of NY Christmas Tree growers was conducted to learn about current cultural and pest management practices. Over 150 growers responded to a series of questions regarding tree species grown, types of marketing, pest problems, management approaches, information and training sources and educational/extension/research needs. The data indicated a number of opportunities for the NYSIPM program to have a significant role in making positive impacts for this industry.
