FARMWALK 2018: Organic Orchard Pest Management / Manejo Orgánico de Plagas de la Huerta - White Bear Orchard
¡Esta será una FARMWALK completamente bilingüe ofrecida con el apoyo de WSU Skagit County Extension, Viva Farms y por el USDA!

Nuestro anfitrión, Manuel Mendoza, ha hecho exitosamente la transición de trabajador agrícola a propietario de una granja, comprando las huertas White Bear de 60 acres en las que trabajó durante 25 años. Manuel discutirá y demostrará sus estrategias orgánicas de manejo de plagas y la implementación del hábitat para polinizadores beneficiosos. Trabajando en conjunto con entomólogos de WSU buscaremos insectos benéficos y discutiremos formas de mejorar aún más su hábitat. También consideraremos la selección de variedades para mejorar las estrategias de manejo de plagas. También tendremos la oportunidad de aprender más sobre el sistema de riego actualizado de Manuel, que ha instalado con los fondos de contrapartida del USDA, para ayudar a conservar y administrar su agua de manera más eficiente.

Working together with WSU entomologists we will scout for beneficial insects and discuss ways of further enhancing their habitat. We will also consider varietal selection to enhance pest management strategies.
