Tobacco harvest and insect populations are winding down. Last week, the grower at our Eastern 1 and 2 sites and the crew at our Upper Coastal Plain Research Station sites finished priming, so our tobacco experiments are done for the season. We will present the results of our experiments at grower meetings later in the year, and plan on continuing the on-farm IPM experiment next season.
