Cannabis is not like any other crop. Many pests love to feed on the leaves, stems and roots but growers are very limited in how they can control these problems. In this workshop, attendees will learn to identify the most common pests found on cannabis plants, covering not only the different life stages of the pests but also the kinds of damage they cause and ways to scout for them. Management tools from biological control agents, approved pesticides and cultural practices will be covered.  This will be a very applied session with tools growers can take back to their facility and implement right away.
