This special two-part session combining discussion with research updates will first look at the ongoing research to find organic controls for bagrada bug, along with cultural practices that can help manage populations. Dr. Shimat Joseph will present his work on this pest, and then participants can discuss any strategies that are helping them with this very troubling insect.
The second portion of the session will broaden the discussion to hear about other concerns from organic producers that would benefit from field research. Researchers from the Kearney Agricultural Research and Extension Center (KARE) will be present to discuss their facilities and objectives and hear from the organic community on what research needs are and what support is available for organic research on their certified organic parcel.
