June 2016 Issue

Features
Testing New Chemicals for Controlling Thrips | Stanton Gill & Brian Kunkel
In 2015, the University of Maryland Extension and University of Delaware Cooperative Extension conducted trials to evaluate several labeled, or soon-to-be labeled, insecticides for their potential in controlling thrips in commercial greenhouses.

Columns
