Articles & Tour Handouts
One means of communication to growers, managers and stakeholders will be through trade articles written about the project or about results produced by the project. Although this project is in its infancy, there are a series of articles that appeared in the Good Fruit Grower about the need for a transition to newer IPM practices. Also, as PMTP progresses, there will be handouts available that were produced for various field tours that involve this project. The articles and handouts can be downloaded for reading below. The files are in PDF format and you will need Acrobat Reader (Windows or Mac) or Preview (Mac) to view. Please note: The articles and handbooks are separate from the PMTP Implementation Handbook sections. If you are looking specifically for the Handbook, go here.
