Cornell University has published a new integrated pest management series of 15 fact sheets under the title “Apple IPM for Beginners.”

The series was edited by Deb Breth, with the Cornell Cooperative Extension Lake Ontario Fruit Program, with contributions from seven entomologists, horticulturists, and disease control specialists.

The fact sheets can be downloaded in PDF format either individually or as a complete guide. It can be found at

“These fact sheets and scouting guides are a compromise between the most accurate, complex information researchers have to offer and the amount of information a beginner can take in,” Breth said.
