FARMWALK: Organic Orchard Pest Management
August 6, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT| $15 – $25
From WSU Tree Fruit Extension:
Organic Orchard Pest Management FARMWALK at White Bear Orchards in Quincy, Washington.
This will be a fully bilingual FARMWALK offered with support from WSU Skagit County Extension, Viva Farms and the USDA!
Our host, Manuel Mendoza, has successfully made the transition from farm worker to farm owner, purchasing the 60-acre White Bear Orchards he had worked on for 25 years. Manuel will discuss and demonstrate his organic pest management strategies and implementation of habitat for beneficial pollinators. Working together with WSU entomologists we will scout for beneficial insects and discuss ways of further enhancing their habitat. We will also consider varietal selection to enhance pest management strategies. We’ll also have a chance to learn more about Manuel’s updated irrigation system, which he has installed with USDA matching funds, to help conserve and manage his water more efficiently.
