Objectives:

Provide IPM information to ornamental growers:

Reach growers that we have not reached through on-campus programming

Use a format that encourages active learning and practice change

Background:

A 2007 survey of 384 NYS greenhouse ornamental producers showed that the majority of them use some IPM practices but that there is still the need and desire for IPM training in disease and insect identification, use of cultural and biological control, and production practices related to water and nutrient use that affect pest management.

An annual half-day, hands-on training program for ornamental growers, called IPM In-depth, was started on the Cornell University campus in association with the Floriculture Field Day in 2008. Three new topics are presented each year. This project takes the IPM In-depth concept and format and translates it into a traveling training opportunity.

  • Format:
  • Three 1-hour modules per program (see notebook for examples of handouts):
  • Entomology, Plant Pathology, Crop Production
  • Followed by a tour of a local greenhouse
  • Cooperation with County Extension Educators
  • They provide location, local advertising, registration, refreshments/
  • lunch, help identify greenhouse for tour, and can charge whatever
  • they feel is appropriate for the location/clentele.
  • Cooperation between Cornell Department of Entomology, Cornell Department of Horticulture, NYS Flower Industries, NYS IPM
  • We provide the expertise, equipment and supplies

Program locations

Impacts:

14 locations, 16 programs, over 250 participants (2009-2012)

Primary audience was retail and wholesale greenhouse growers but increasing numbers of greenhouse vegetable growers and new/potential farmers.

 82% had not been to previous IPM In-depth programs on campus (compared to 27% of those attending the on-campus program)

52% had not been to other IPM programming

84% reported intent to change practices at their operation based on what

they had learned
