Resistance management discussed in latest 'Focus on Potato' webcast

The misuse and overuse of pesticides has resulted in various consequences, and pesticide resistance is among the most difficult to address.

To improve resistance management against the Colorado potato beetle and other insect pests, growers, consultants, and other pest management practitioners need an improved understanding of insecticide rotations, using different mode-of-action classes.

The latest “Focus on Potato” webcast, titled, “Rotating New Chemistries in Potato Pest Management” offers just that. In this talk, Russ Groves, Extension vegetable entomology specialist and associate professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, helps users better understand the need for effective rotation of insecticide chemistries to build adequate and longer-term control of problematic insect pests.

This 30-minute presentation is open access through Oct. 31.

Other presentations in the Focus on Potato resource can be viewed at www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/fop.
