Members of the Sustainable SWD Project will present a webinar online on January 25th at 12-1 p.m. eastern time, highlighting information about control of the invasive insect pest, spotted wing Drosophila. The webinar titled “Making the Most of Your Insecticide Toolbox to Manage SWD” will cover research conducted during the first year of this project, and will provide recommendations for growers to prepare for the 2017 growing season. In this webinar, presenters from North Carolina State University, Michigan State University, and the University of Georgia will report on their research on insecticidal control of spotted wing drosophila.

Future webinars will report on biological control, population modeling, and other aspects of this multistate project. Funded by the USDA-NIFA Specialty Crops Research Initiative, this multiyear project aims to improve grower’s options for the control of spotted wing drosophila.
