Grower's IPM Guide for Florida Tomato and Pepper Production
The IPM Florida office has assembled an IPM decision making resource for Florida’s pepper and tomato industry.
We have compiled information into an interdisciplinary, comprehensive resource that will direct the user through the process of IPM planning. This guide presents the use of IPM tactics as means to reduce the risk of epidemics, conserve chemistries against resistance and reduce overall production costs.
