Excellent New Onion Production Bulletin Available

Kudos to the Onion ipmPIPE Project and Colorado State University for the publication of Onion Health Management and Production, a 104 page, full-color bulletin written by a national team of 20 onion experts.

The bulletin provides highlights on common production practices and integrated pest management strategies in use by progressive onion growers and the industry throughout the U.S. Included in the bulletin are:
  • Onion growth stages
  • Pest and disease diagnostic aids
  • Plant damage scales
  • Pest and disease occurrence charts
  • Other field-oriented tips
Free copies are available by contacting Editor Howard F. Schwartz at Colorado State University. This is the second major onion publication authored by Howard recently. Earlier this year, he was the lead author on an updated Pest Management Strategic Plan for dry bulb storage onions developed with Western IPM Center funding.

The new bulletin was developed as part of a USDA-National Institute of Food and Agriculture project and the Colorado Integrated Pest Management Program.
