Organic Options for Colorado Potato Beetle Control (please consult your certifying party to determine if these products are allowed first before using)

Entrust Naturalyte

Insect Control

5

1 - 2 ozs

Treat eggs at hatch or small larvae.  Repeat applications may be necessary to protect new foliage.  Do not apply Entrust to consecutive

generations of Colorado potato beetle and do not make more than

two applications per single generation of Colorado potato beetle.

Aza-Direct

(azadirachtin)

 

1 - 2 pts

Best control is achieved at the upper end of the use range.  Does not

provide immediate mortality.  Foliage contact and coverage extremely important.

UN

UN

2-16 oz

15-30 oz

Most effective on small larvae, initiate application when 25% of the initial egg masses have hatched or more than 200 small larvae are found on 25 vines, continue to scout and apply at 5 to 7 day intervals during egg hatching.  Allowed for organic production if allowed by sanctioning body

ENY Orchard Soil Health and Beneficial Fungi Meeting

August 15, 2024 : ENY Orchard Soil Health and Beneficial Fungi Meeting
Peru, NY

The soils that we grow our trees in play a critical role in the success of our orchard's productivity.  Mycorrhizal fungi provide many benefits to the soils, though it is still unclear to what extent inoculating our soils with commercial blends of these fungi may have on the growth of trees during orchard establishment.

Join the members of CCE ENYCHP and the Cornell Soil Health Program for a field meeting on the basics of soil health, the potential benefits of mycorrhizal fungi, and an update on the current project status of our SARE grant on orchard mycorrhizal products.

This meeting is intended for farmworkers, young and beginning orchardists, and experienced orchard managers wanting to learn about the basics of soil health and mycorrhizal fungi within the orchard.
