The 25th annual Pest Management Conference, presented by Society of American Florists and Greenhouse Grower, will feature more than 25 expert-led sessions in San Jose, Calif. New and emerging pests, strategies for resistance, tricks to reduce weeds, dealing with viruses and managing invasives–an item that’s surely on the top of your mind–are among the many topics experts will discuss. Don’t forget to register early to save, and keep an eye on Benchrunner in the coming weeks for more details about the experts’ presentations.
The conference takes place Feb. 19-21, and attendees can earn credits toward their pesticide applicator recertification while there. Just be sure to bring your state-issued applicator or certification number. And don’t forget about the optional growing operations tour Feb. 19. Attendees will visit local operations to see what exactly those growers are doing to manage pests and diseases.
