Fall is quickly approaching, which means it is time to start gearing up for poinsettia production. Poinsettias are susceptible to a variety of diseases and pests, like Botrytis and whiteflies, so it is important to take preventive actions to ensure high-quality crops.
Many Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs incorporate traditional chemical products and biological control agents (BCAs).
Fungus gnats and shore flies can quickly build up in the greenhouse during spring production. Warm, wet conditions favor their development and with their short life cycle, it doesn’t take long for populations to increase.
