IPDM orchard walks Spring 2019

Renowned entomologist and IPDM specialist David Williams, together with local experts, will run IPDM orchard walks this Spring.

The sessions will be held on case study IPDM orchards in each state and be a chance to see what IPDM strategies have been implemented and how well they have worked.

The sessions will cover:

  • current local IPDM issues;
  • overview the host case study orchard and look at what IPDM strategies have been implemented;
  • an orchard walk, including hands on monitoring.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own hand lens if they have one.
