About the Guide

A comprehensive guide for commercial production of greenhouse ornamentals with information on current pest management and growth regulators. Recommendations include IPM and biological control information for greenhouse crops.

This manual is a compilation of input from the members of the New England State University Extension Systems of Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut and Rhode Island and Raymond Cloyd, Kansas State University..

New for 2013

  • 270 pages of up-to-date recommendations for nonchemical and chemical management of greenhouse insects, mites, diseases, weeds and algae, plus recommendations for using plant growth regulators
  • Guidelines specific to New England, in a durable plastic comb binding.
  • Expanded information about using natural enemies to manage insects and mites.
  • Details about how to use pesticides safely and effectively, and how to mitigate development of pesticide resistance.

The Guide is designed to provide commercial growers with technical information on pest management (weeds, diseases and insects) and growth regulators. Because this is a publication written by professionals from throughout New England, and rewritten every two years, it reflects the current collective knowledge for greenhouse crops for this region. Published by New England Floriculture, Inc., sponsor of the Northeast Greenhouse Conference.
