Integrated Pest Management for Commercial Horticulture

Commercial Ornamental Horticulture:
Maintaining high quality plant material involves carefully and routinely observing plants and looking for early signs of an infestation or problems with plant material.  Correctly diagnosing the problem is also key to an TPM/IPM plant management approach.  Commercial plant samples suspected of having disease problems can be sent to the Plant Diagnostic Lab.

This web site is designed to help commercial horticulturists and IPM scouts invovled with nursery, greenhouse, and landscape management to correctly identify and address problems with diseases, insects, mites, and fertility management.  The web site is a cooperative effort amoung regional specialists and extension educators, and it is maintained through the Central Maryland Research and Education Center in Ellicott City.
