Permalink Publication Offers Recommendations for Managing Spotted Wing Drosophila on Organic Berries

As part of an Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative project funded by NIFA, University of Georgia Extension has published an eight-page bulletin titled Management Recommendations for Spotted Wing Drosophila in Organic Berry Crops. The publication describes an integrated pest management program for spotted wing drosophila (SWD), an important pest of berry crops. Organic growers need to practice active monitoring, and utilize preventative practices such as exclusion, sanitation, frequent harvest intervals, pruning, mulching, and resistant varieties. The publication also discusses application of organic-compliant insecticides.
