The plant debris should be placed immediately in environment monoculture is suggested, however, if one has to a covered container before being disposed-off. This practice go for polyculture then avoid staggered planting. A fallow can be helpful in reducing the pest population of all the period of two to four weeks reduces the pest load targeted pests.
Pruning lower leaves after harvesting lower considerably. To determine the presence of thrips, whiteflies, fruit clusters is helpful measure in removing large numbers of leaf-miners, or other insects, set up yellow sticky cards and developing leaf-miners and whiteflies. Planting border rows of Portulaca oleracea in rose can be used as a b Inspection upon arrival trap crop for tobacco caterpillar under protected environment. One of the most important points in protected cultivation is to begin with insect-free planting material.
When new plants f Plant Quarantine arrive at the greenhouse, examine them closely for signs of Professionals or labours working in the greenhouse are one of pest infestation. If necessary, remove lower or damaged the mechanisms for dispersal of insects and mite pests. It is a relative method of insect population estimation where no direct observations on the plants for the presence of insect- II.
Scouting and early detection pests are needed. However, the pest population is estimated Scouting and early detection are critical to manage the insect with the help of attractant traps. For whiteflies, aphids, thrips infestation successfully. It includes visual inspection of protected environment. Additionally, for thrips blue coloured foliage and flowers; and the use of sticky or light traps. Many sticky traps can also be used.
The traps are placed in a grid insect infestations begin in isolated spots within the pattern and yellow sticky cards per square meter of greenhouse. Timely crop monitoring identifies situations floor area are used. If the target is mass trapping, then number where pests are absent or are at levels well below economic of traps can be increased to five or more. As the crop grows, cards can be moved up.
Designate the location of each sticky card on a Scouting map of the greenhouse. Check the sticky cards every scouting Scouting procedures for most greenhouse-grown crops are visit twice a week if possible and record the total number of based on visual observations and are used to provide whiteflies, thrips, winged aphids and leaf-miners from each estimates of the pest population in protected environment. Change the cards when more than The common pests that attack greenhouse crops do not per cent of the area is covered by trapped insect.
Therefore, it is imperative to scout the entire greenhouse in a consistent, III. Curative measures uniform pattern. Inspect the entire plant, including the soil A Biological Control surface, for the presence of arthropod pests. Look at the plant Biological control is the action of parasites, predators or systematically each time. Begin at the bottom and work up.
In flush growth. When the crop is young, it is important to check entomology, it has been used to describe the use of live insect all the leaves on the plant. Because a majority of arthropod predator and parasitoids, entomopathogenic nematodes or pests associated prefers the underside of a leaf, it is important microbial pathogens to suppress populations of different pest to turn the leaves over to check for pests. The detailed account insects. The organism that suppresses the insect pest is of observations to be recorded is presented below.
BCAs Scout the crop on a regular basis and at least per cent of are of utmost importance in case of protected cultivation and the total plants should be inspected at weekly interval. A widely used against a number of pests. Biological control in thorough greenhouse inspection reveals the location and the greenhouse environment is a viable alternative to pesticide severity of any current pest problems.
One should use a field use from both environmental and economic perspectives . Therefore, make releases in the evening management in herbs. Parasitism of the whiteflies, Trialeurodes Predators vaporariorum and Bemisia tabaci was as high as 85 to 96 per Predatory mite Amblyseius swirskii cent. Parasitism levels in A. The parasitoid A. Of these, A. Parasitism rates varied from 2. The term pesticide is used to those chemicals which Chemicals which kill insects are rhizome, Vitex negundo leaves and mycopathogens called as insecticides. Insecticide may be defined as a Verticillium lecanii, Metarrhizium anisopliae were substance or mixture of substances intended to kill, repel or evaluated for the management of mites and thrips under otherwise prevent the insects.
At 10 DAS, neem oil maintained its superiority in recording lowest mite Importance of chemical control population 6. They are highly effective, rapid in curative treatments in reducing the mite population. At 10 DAS, action, adoptable to most situations, flexible in meeting pongamia oil was the most superior treatment 3.

Over time, population trends will emerge and provide direction for your pest management program. Potato disks are used to monitor for fungus gnat larvae. In general, use 5—10 potato wedges per 1, ft2 of greenhouse production area. Record the number of larvae located on each potato disk or wedge, and those present on the surface of the growing medium. Indicator plants are typically used to determine the efficacy of pest management tactics or to monitor for the viruses tospoviruses such as impatiens necrotic spot virus INSV and tomato spotted wilt virus TSWV vectored by the western flower thrips Frankliniella occidentalis.
Before implementing any pest management strategy, select and tag or flag the leaves or stems of 1—5 infested plants per 1, ft2. The tagged plant allows the scout to easily recognize it from a distance. After implementing any pest management tactic, inspect the indicator plants to assess if arthropod pests have been killed and evaluate the effectiveness and longevity of control.
Petunia used as an indicator plant for INSV. Position a blue card with the sticky portion covered near the indicator plants in order to attract adult thrips. Blue plastic picnic plates photo cut in half work well in place of a sticky card to attract adult thrips. If thrips adults possess any tospovirus, a brown, necrotic spotting will be observed near white feeding scars on the plants within 48 hours.
Rogue out any infected petunia or fava bean plants so as to remove any potential virus sources. Virus infections are systemic in fava bean but not petunia. For example, spraying a pest control material in this case an insecticide to manage whiteflies is most effective when they are in the nymphal stages. Misidentification of arthropod insect or mite pests or their life stages can be costly and lead to inadequate control such that arthropod pest populations increase to levels that cause crop damage.
Arthropod pest identification can be improved by participating in state-wide workshops and integrated pest management IPM training programs; by referring to manuals, picture guides and fact sheets; by accessing web-based resources such as the images found on the New England Greenhouse Update website or by using a text and image search engine such as Google ; and by submitting specimens to an Extension entomologist.
Pest and Disease Management in Commercial Greenhouses
Each time the crop is scouted, record arthropod pest numbers, location within the greenhouse, and the number of plants inspected. Record arthropod pest counts by date, in a notebook or on a form so as to track population trends over time. Pest Management fact sheets. Data on arthropod pest abundance, location within the greenhouse, and population trends increases, decreases, or stable help determine the effectiveness of pest management tactics. Each week, review the scouting records to assess the effectiveness of those pest management tactics being implemented.
Early detection of arthropod pests helps prevent the need to deal with extensive populations that may cause crop damage. Pest numbers recorded from sticky card counts and foliar inspections, the use of indicator plants, and located reservoirs of pests will help to prioritize a pest-management strategy. When problems are detected early, better pesticide coverage may be achieved due to a smaller canopy, and problem areas can be identified and treated, reducing the need for blanket pesticide applications.
Over time, growers will determine their individual threshold for a given pest. One grower may accept thrips per sticky card per week, while another grower with a history of Impatiens Necrotic Spot Virus will not accept 5 thrips per sticky card per week. It is also helpful to review scouting records at the end of each growing season to determine which pests were problematic and which pest management worked.
The weekly scouting reports and action taken is the basis for decisions about current and future pest management strategies and for judging the efficacy and cost of any management action. Greenhouses provide a suitable environment e. Many natural enemies are commercially available and can be incorporated into existing greenhouse pest management programs. In general, the use of biological control is most effective in extended cropping systems such as cut flowers and vegetables, however they are also being successfully used in short term ornamental cropping systems such as annual bedding plants.
Biological control is much easier to implement in a monoculture single crop than in a polyculture multiple crops. Natural enemies cannot be used in the same manner as pest control materials insecticides or miticides. Pest control materials are typically applied after arthropod pests reach damaging levels, and when effective, the designated pest control material reduces the arthropod pest population.
Using natural enemies as a curative control is less successful compared to applying them preventively. Natural enemies should be released early in the cropping cycle when plants are small, arthropod pest populations are low, and before crop damage occurs.
Releases of natural enemies may be required throughout the growing season in order to sustain arthropod pests at low populations. A biological control program can succeed if these recommendations are followed: 1 correctly identify all arthropod pests, 2 purchase natural enemies from a reliable biological control supplier, 3 make sure there is a consistent supply of high quality natural enemies, 4 emphasize that proper shipping procedures be followed, and 5 obtain directions from biological control suppliers on proper release rates and timing of application.
Start any new biological control program in a small isolated greenhouse, in propagation houses, or in a greenhouse where edible crops such as herbs are being grown. This approach allows you to gain experience and then have the opportunity to expand into other production areas. It is critical to implement a scouting program and establish a favorable relationship with your biological control supplier early. The success of any biological control program relies on patience and a strong commitment to detail e.
Photos of biological control agents and information on using biological control can be found at: New England Greenhouse Update. Arthropod pest identification is extremely important when initiating biological control programs in greenhouses because natural enemies, particularly parasitoids, are specific in the types of insect pests they use as hosts.
For arthropod pest identification information, consult trade journal articles, books, manuals, fact sheets, and picture identification guides, or send specimens to your Extension entomologist. For information on sending samples. Be sure to consult your biological control supplier to determine the availability of the natural enemy species you are interested in and designated shipping requirements for them. Predatory mites are being used to prevent thrips. The mites are mixed with bran and a small pile is placed on each seedling tray. Adult mites emerge from the pile and attack early larval stages of thrips.
Agricultural Experiment Station. North American Amphibian Monitoring Program. North American Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative. Repair any drainage problems that may contribute to recurring arthropod pest outbreaks. Review previous pest problems and current pesticide application methods and make a note of crops growing in adjacent greenhouses or outdoors.
Consider how the variety of plants to be grown in the same area may influence ease of pesticide applications and spread of disease. Inspect incoming stock as soon as possible after arrival and before plants are moved into production areas for the presence of insects, mites, diseases, or cultural problems. Use yellow sticky cards to monitor flying pests. Use potato disks to monitor fungus gnat larvae. Use indicator plants to determine the efficacy of pest management tactics and to monitor susceptible crops for the viruses tospoviruses such as impatiens necrotic spot virus INSV and tomato spotted wilt virus TSWV.
Correctly identify pests and beneficials on sticky cards and plants. Record pest numbers, location within the greenhouse, and the number of plants inspected.

Review scouting records at the end of each growing season to determine which pests were problems and which pest management strategies worked. Integrated Pest Management Integrated pest management IPM is a strategy that prevents pest damage with minimum adverse impact on human health, the environment and non-target organisms.
Successful IPM programs have five key components: Prevent problems Regularly monitor crops and growing areas Accurately diagnose problems Develop control action thresholds and guidelines Use effective management methods Prevent Problems Many crop problems can be anticipated and avoided.
