Pesticide Versatility Charts Now Available

With so many crops to manage on diverse New England farms, growers often ask us which materials are labeled for both fruit and vegetable applications so that they can purchase one pesticide that can be used on all or most of their crops. This project has been on the list to do for years, and this winter our program assistant Genevieve Higgins was able to tackle it. We hope you will find these tables helpful in choosing the most versatile pesticides!
