Symposium--Insect Ecology in Organic Crop Management Systems
ASA Section: Agronomic Production Systems
Organic production practices focus on an ecological approach to management to create a sustainable and resilient cropping system. Farming practices used by organic farmers, such as diverse crop rotations, cover cropping, planting insectary crops, and creating pollinator habitats can serve as examples as to the interaction between prodcution strategies and pest and beneficial insect interactions. The goal of this session is to explore those interactions through the research of agronomists and entomologists working in these systems.
Approved for 3 IPM CEUs.
