Grape Berry Moth Although the Japanese beetle is rapidly moving to the top of the list in many areas of Maryland the grape berry moth (Paralobesia viteana; GBM) has typically been the most significant insect pest in the vineyard due to its direct and indirect damage to the berries and clusters.
Japanese Beetles Japanese beetles can periodically be a significant pest in Maryland vineyards. They create large holes in the younger leaves of vines and cause severe lacing and even fruit damage in heavy infestations. The population build up is typically periodic and cyclic and may require control tactics in years of large infestations.
Tomato Plastic Mulch and Shade Study Tomato plants were transplanted on 7 May 2012 into black (grower standard), white or reflective plastic mulch. Five different varieties of tomato were used: Mt Spring+, Celebrity, Mt Fresh+, Crista and Scarlet Red. When tomato plants began to develop fruit, a 30% shade cloth was randomly placed over 6-10 plants per row.
Virus Transmission by Striped Cucumber Beetle in Pumpkins Growers in the mid-Atlantic have been complaining about early season (late June early July) virus infections of their cucurbit crops, most notably pumpkins, squash and cucumbers and much less in watermelon and cantaloupe.
Organic Weed Control in No-Till Vegetable Systems Organic vegetable growers have a hard time managing weeds, as there are no reliable Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) chemicals for controlling grass or broad leaf weeds. Most of the time growers depend on tillage for weed control, but excess tillage can lead to destruction of soil structure and the loss of carbon from the soil.
2016 Fungicide Resistance Management Guidelines Available The Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC) has released the 10th Edition of the guide, the Fungicide Resistance Management Guidelines for Vegetable Crops Grown in the Mid-Atlantic Region for 2016.
