Join us for a webinar on “Incorporating Sustainable Practices into Plasticulture Strawberry Production”, 3:00-4:30 p.m. on Tuesday March 11th, 2014.

This webinar will cover sustainable soil management and integrated pest management practices that can be easily integrated into plasticulture strawberry production systems. Topics to be covered include soil health, compost, cover crops, soil testing, integrated pest management practices and ideas for incorporating these methods into a plasticulture production system. We will primarily focus on the application of these practices for strawberry producers in the SE United States but the general concepts can be applied anywhere.
