Retail Nursery & Garden Center IPM News
Retail nursery and garden centers are among the top sources of pest management information for home gardeners. To help provide customers with the latest pest information from the University of California, the UC Statewide IPM Program created the Retail Nursery and Garden Center IPM News, a three times yearly e-newsletter for retail nursery and garden center employees, managers, owners, and affiliates.
Please e-mail us if you have questions or feedback, or if you have special topics you'd like us to cover in future issues.
