We provide research-based information for backyard gardeners and green industry professionals, including regional specific information.
Promoting profitable and sustainable tree fruit production and pest control through trainings, research, technical support, community outreach, and expert advice.
While research projects with the BEAV are a key program component, the main focus of this program is grower outreach. Our goal is to bridge the gap between the technology available and the grower in the field to help provide a useful, easily accessible tool for plant health monitoring.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the appropriate use of all available methods to maintain pest populations below damaging levels. The goal of our research is to develop ecologically sound pest management strategies and tactics and, in conjunction with the Extension Service, to introduce and demonstrate these management tools and techniques to growers and field managers.
