Habitat and Conservation Practices for Beneficial Insects on Idaho Farms


Monday, December 16, 2013 (All Day Event)

Researchers at the Integrated Plant Protection Center (IPPC) of Oregon State University (OSU), and the Western Region IPM Center at the University of California (UC), Davis and conservationists of The Nature Conservancy Idaho and Xerces are teaming up to provide you a two-day short course on on-farm beneficial insects and the agricultural conservation practices that promote them on your farm. Part one of the course will be a winter day full of details (January 16th, Hailey, ID) on the beneficial insect predators, parasites and pollinators themselves, establishing practices that provide essentials they need to stay on your farm and how to integrate these practices within your farm production plan (various production systems represented).  Guest speakers include Ron Bitner of Bitner Vineyards in Caldwell and ID Natural Resources Conservation Service representative Patti Hurley.
