About the Webinar
Imported cabbageworm, vegetable loopers, and diamondback moths can be serious pests of brassicas and other crops. Using many years of information from four farms, we have characterized successful whole-farm management systems. Our analysis suggests paths to success for other farms who have, or anticipate, cabbageworm outbreaks.
