apple orchard notifications from cornell #111088
Asked December 26, 2012, 6:27 AM EST
Does Cornell provide information on current insects and IPM techniques during the year either online or email? For instance, I'm from Massachusetts and Umass does in its IPM Berry Blast -- a periodic e-message that highlights specific pest issues (insect, disease or weed), on a timely basis through the growing season. These messages contain basic identification and life cycle information along with integrated management (IPM) recommendations for pests likely to be found at the time the message is issued. Recommendations are based on current information.

Cornell does have information for growers. You probably should call your local extension to get the details on how to access the information. At one time it was on the web page but due to a bunch of cutbacks and a lack to state and federal funds, there has been some reorganization. You can also do a search for Cornell IPM apples to get a few web pages which may now be up to date.
