This free Field Day with Andy Fellenz from Fellenz Family Farm (Ontario County) will start with identification of common high tunnel pests and diseases and review effective organic control strategies, including spraying. Fellenz has developed and will demonstrate a boom-style high tunnel sprayer, and discuss the proper use of backpack and other relatively low pressure, low flow single-tip sprayers. Variety selection, rotation, cultural practices and spraying all have a place in the overall farm strategy. To register, please contact Angela Parr at aep63@cornell.edu. Sponsored by NE-SARE through a Farmer Grant, NE-SARE FNE14-798, and cosponsored by NOFA-NY.
