In this webinar, Kristy Grigg-McGuffin (Horticulture IPM Specialist with the Ontario Ministry of Agricultural, Food, and Rural Affairs) will discuss Ontario's experience with ALCM, including its biology, monitoring, biological control, and chemical management.

DEC Credits Available: 1 credit in categories A1, 10, 22
