Michigan State University Extension is proud to partner with Hop Growers of Michigan to provide integrated pest management education as part of their annual hop tours.
The meetings will kick off with an introduction of the farm, followed by IPM education. The IPM portion of the tour will include a review of the major pests of hop as well as how to scout for and identify them. The event will wrap-up with a tour of the farm and some time to talk informally.
Growers are encouraged to bring unknown plant and insect samples for diagnosis. Please place samples in sealed bags as a courtesy to our host farms. These meetings will be held outside rain or shine, so dress accordingly and plan for inclement weather. Registration is required, but the program is free. Donations to Hop Growers of Michigan may be made at the event. Restricted use pesticides credits will be available.
