Posted: June 13, 2011
This 114 page guide includes general information on diagnosis, integrated pest management, pesticide safety, key diseases and effective timing of control measures. It also includes specific information of the most common insects, mites and diseases found on more than 65 woody ornamental plants commonly used in Pennsylvania landscapes. This is the place to find the most recent control recommendations, including cultural ways to avoid some problems. Tables that link product trade names to the common names of their active ingredients have also been updated. A feature new to this edition is information on Mode of Action Groups (MoA) for the miticides/insecticides and Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC) codes for the fungicides, which will help applicators to avoid development of pesticide resistance. This book is useful for green industry professionals, as well as home gardeners.
