Technical Publications

File Herms, D. 2004. Using degree days & plant phenology to predict pest emergence.
Excellent primer on using growing degree days, complete with GDD for various insects. In: V. Krischik and J. Davidson, eds. IPM of Midwest Landscapes, pp. 49-59. Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station Publication 58-07645, 316 pp.
File Green et al. 1990 Systematic approach to diagnosing plant damage.
Excellent beginning reference to determine what might be damaging plants. Includes great comparisons between fungus/bacteria, and various insect pests. Not specific to plant genera, this is a big picture reference to help narrow down what is causing plant damage observed. ORNAMENTALS NORTHWEST ARCHIVES. 1990. Vol.13, Issue 6. Pages ii-24.
File LeBude et al. 2012. Assessing IPM use in nurseries in SE USA
A rather lengthy survey of container and field grower's use of IPM. Prepare to be attacked by lots of tables. The data are organized into three groups of IPM users in descending use of the principles. Learn which techniques growers are using often and determine which ones might need more research and education to implement into production systems.
File Griesbach et al. 2011. Safe procurement and production manual. A systems approach for the production of healthy nursery stock.
This takes a systems approach to preventing pests in nurseries by documenting critical control points in the system and offering myriad ideas to improve sanitation and prevention. Also talks about certification of nurseries for shipping plants. By John A. Griesbach, Jennifer L. Parke, Gary A. Chastagner, Niklaus J. Gr├╝nwald and John Aguirre. Oregon Association of Nurseries, Wilsonville, Oregon.
File Fulcher et al. 2012 Stakeholder vision of future direction and strategies for southeastern U.S. nursery pest research and extension programming
The focus group and survey format effectively identified grower needs that will help inform nursery producers and guide university Extension and research professionals, university administrators, industry associations, and state and federal government officials toward efficient resource allocation. These prioritizations explain the current state-of-need across a diverse agricultural industry segment and will help further refine future strategic action plans for nursery integrated pest management (IPM) and emerging critical nursery crop pest issues. Another excellent publication from the Southern Nursery IPM (SNIPM) Working Group.
