Apr 22, 2013Psyllid workshops in Tri-States
There are several psyllid/zebra chip/insect recognition workshops planned this spring in Oregon, Idaho and Washington.
In Oregon, the Rondon entomology lab offers two workshops on potato psyllid and zebra chip identification. The workshops will be designed to help those in potato production prepare or review psyllid monitoring techniques and potato psyllid identification.
These workshops will be offered at the Hermiston Agricultural Research and Extension Center: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. May 15, and 9 a.m. to noon May 24. For more information, call Annette Teraberry at 541-567-6337 or email [email protected]
