This spreadsheet should be used with a season-long Integrated Pest Management Plan. Talk to your Penn State Extension educator if you need help building one.
General Instructions for Use
- Begin with the tab labeled "Background Info" and fill in Grower Name, Grower Number, Farm Information and Applicator Information
- The tabs named "Apples," "Peaches," "Cherries" and "Pears" are for recording your sprays.
- Make an entry each time a product is used in the field by clicking the tab for the crop you wish to record. For each application, fill in columns in blue. Skipping a line before recording your next spray will create an easier to read form. Always read the pesticide label.
- A nice way to review the principles of IPM is to view a new Penn State Extension Video on IPM in Orchards. The video is also available in Spanish.
